Urban Meditation Retreat with Venerable Dr. Vimokkha Medhino
April 21, 2018 @ 9:00 am - April 22, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Ven. Vimokkha returns to the Metta Centre from Thailand again for a weekend urban retreat on “Intuitive Awareness”.
This workshop-style retreat will have talks and meditation sessions to demonstrate a pragmatic approach to arouse pure intuitive awareness with clear knowing and seeing. In line with Venerable Vimokkha’s style of teaching, his simple technique is by looking at what you are doing, watching what you are looking at, and seeing clearly what you are watching. The simplicity of the practice allows continuity in practice, such that one can develop meditation and insight both in the formal practice sitting meditation and also in our daily life’s work and activities. Venerable Vimokkha’s guidance is based on breathing meditation, mindfulness immersed throughout the whole body and emptiness meditation.
