Insight Meditation Retreat:
“Cultivating a Wise and Compassionate Heart”
With Rebecca Bradshaw, Insight Meditation Society
Choice of: April 24-26 or April 24-29, 2015 (Revised Dates; Registration Now Open.) Grailville Retreat Center ▪ Loveland, Ohio
The Buddha’s teachings offer a way to develop a deep and embodied presence in our human life. During this retreat we will explore a natural, easeful awareness of our moment by moment experience. Extensive guidance will be offered in how to meet all experiences of body, thought, and emotions with compassionate presence, in the process discovering our own innate qualities of wisdom and openheartedness. This two or five day retreat, held in silence with alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, will include daily guided Vipassana and loving kindness practice, evening talks, and opportunities to meet with the teacher. Students are encouraged to consider the five day option, which often results in a greater deepening of their practice. The retreat is appropriate for both new and experienced meditators. Rebecca will be assisted by Jessica Morey, who will also offer optional afternoon yoga.
Rebecca Bradshaw is the Guiding Teacher of the Insight Meditation Center of Pioneer Valley in Easthampton, Massachusetts, and one of the Guiding Teachers at the Insight Meditation Center in Barre, MA. She has been teaching since 1993 in the United States and abroad, bringing a style that explores the convergence of love and wisdom.
Grailville is located in the rolling hills of southwest Ohio. Grailville’s 300 acres include walking trails, woods, pastures, ponds, creeks, and labyrinths and provides a powerful setting for spiritual practice. Vegetarian meals will be provided.
We have been advised that Grailville will no longer offer retreat space after June, 2015. We have therefore delayed the idea of venturing into a seven day retreat and will proceed with our regular five day format. Our retreats will continue in 2016, time and placed to be announced. Thank you for your understanding. Please join us for what is probably our last retreat in this wonderful, unique space that is Grailville.
