Vipassana Illawarra Calendar

FACE to FACE CANCELLED Illawarra Daylong Retreat - Tops Conference Center August 2021

Due to the extension of the Greater Sydney lock down we will now be offering a half day retreat via the zoom platform.

If you would like to join us via zoom please register here.

Practicing Vipassana meditation is perhaps the greatest gift we can give to ourselves and others. Vipassana is concerned primarily with the cultivation of awareness and understanding. Awareness so that we can see our minds more clearly and Understanding so that we can know what is useful and what is not for experiencing a deep harmonious relationship with ourselves and the world.

The secret of success in meditation practice is in continuity. Throughout the day there will be periods of sitting and walking meditation followed by a Q&A and discussion about strategies for the integration of mindfulness in daily life. The course is suitable for beginners and also those with past experience in insight and mindfulness meditation practices.
