Event Details

We’re very happy to announce a weekend retreat coming up with long-time teacher and friend of the Association, Jim Teoh

This retreat is for lay persons to develop Right Mindfulness and Right Concentration as well as Loving Kindness and to incorporate these practices into their daily life. The teachings are based on the Satipathana Sutta and the Culagosinga Sutta.

The retreat integrates both theoretical and experiential aspects of the practices (sitting meditation and walking meditation). There will also be time for questions and feedback about individual participants’ meditation experience. The retreat is suitable for beginners and practitioners of all levels.
