Our Year of Going Deeper
Join us for a series of eight free meditation events throughout 2014. We’re calling this our Year of Going Deeper.
It includes events for all levels of practice, whether you’re a beginner interested in learning basic techniques or a more experienced meditator interested in cultivating deep meditative states and insight. You’re free to pick and choose which events you participate in.
All events are free, although donations are encouraged.
The Power of Mindfulness
The Power of Mindfulness is our four-week online introduction to meditation. Weaving together the latest scientific research with ancient Buddhist wisdom, this four-week course provides a comprehensive introduction to living mindfully. It’s not just about the skills of meditation. You’ll also learn how to take what you learn into action. This course gives you the tools to gain more insight into yourself, and be more at ease and content through life’s ups and downs.
How to Stop Beating Yourself Up: New York Insight Meditation Center
Bodhipaksa will be in New York City on Nov 22, 2014. He’s leading a self-compassion workshop at the New York Insight Meditation Center: “How to Stop Beating Yourself Up.”
In this workshop Bodhipaksa will introduce a step-by-step guide to the core skills of self-compassion. As well as drawing on models from Buddhist psychology, we’ll take a look at insights from neuroscience, and explore Buddhist compassion and lovingkindness meditation so that we can learn to regard ourselves — and our pain — with compassion and kindness.
Waking Up To Who We Are: A Wildmind Retreat With Bodhipaksa
“Within you is a natural wisdom, waiting to emerge.”
Join Bodhipaksa on a weekend exploration of insight meditation, where we will create the conditions for our innate wisdom to manifest.
Insight meditation, or vipassana, is not one specific technique, but a process in which we look deeply to see who and what we really are.
This retreat is being offered on Feb 27 to Mar 1, 2015, in the beautiful surroundings of the Florida Retreat Center, about 35 minutes south of Tampa and April 24-26, 2015, at the scenic Aryaloka Buddhist Center in Newmarket, NH.
A love as deep as the world: A retreat with Bodhipaksa
Enjoy Bodhipaksa’s unique take on the “divine abidings” — four inspiring and transformative practices that progressively expand our sphere of concern to include all beings. In cultivating kindness (metta), compassion (karuna), joyful appreciation (mudita), and loving with wisdom (upekkha), we develop an unselfish concern as deep as the world itself: a love that leads, ultimately, to awakening.
This retreat is being held at the beautiful Dhanakosa Retreat Center, Balquhidder, Lochearnhead, Scotland, 24 Jul to 31 Jul 2015.
The path to insight: a retreat with Bodhipaksa
Bodhipaksa is leading a retreat about the path to insight at the Vimaladhatu Meditation House, Germany, from Saturday, August 1st thru Saturday, August 8, 2015.
The Buddha’s teachings offer a pathway to inner peace, freedom, and compassion. But we can only go so far on this path unless we challenge our deeply held assumptions of our own permanence and separateness. Through understanding the eternally changing nature of our being, we can let go of self-grasping and awaken to a natural, spontaneous joy and freedom.
The retreat will be led in English. For those who wish, simultaneous translation into German will be available using headphones.
