Awakening with Insight
This silent meditation retreat will emphasize the cultivation of mindfulness of breath, body, and mind to enhance the potential for liberating insight. By cultivating a calm, balanced awareness, we can dissolve any suffering that may entangle our hearts and discover our freedom in the midst of things. This retreat is suitable for both new and experienced practitioners. Shaila will continue to instruct students who choose to continue their concentration practice from the preceding retreat, but she will not repeat the concentration instructions for students who enter retreat after July 16. The focus for this retreat will clearly be mindfulness of body and mind with an inclination toward insight.. 

Participants on the full summer retreat have priority for a single room.
The costs for single and double rooms are equal as Sangha Metta pays the rent per bed and not per room.


€ 57 per night, € 570 per retreat.
Own tent: € 47 per night, € 470 per retreat.

A dhamma teacher is rewarded by dana (free gift).
