Four Close Mindfulnesses Meditation Retreat 2023

Thursday, 6 April until Monday, 10 April, 2023
at De-Tong Ling Retreat Centre, Kangaroo Island, South Australia
Registration closes 27th March, 2023

This retreat will focus on the four close applications of mindfulness, which form the foundation of Buddhist insight practice.
We will investigate how our body, feeling, mind, and phenomena exist.
By deepening our practice of these four, we can develop greater enthusiasm for positive activities, which create causes for a meaningful life.
The four foundations of mindfulness are related to Shamata (calm abiding) as they are the first four of the 37 Enlightenment dharmas.
The subject is an excellent alternative to Shamata as meditations are similar and provide an experience helpful for a more direct understanding of emptiness.
