We would like to inform you that there will be a 10-day mindfulness and loving-kindness retreat led by Jessica Mui from Sept 22 – Oct 1. In the retreat, we will give instructions on how to practice mindfulness meditation with the right view and right attitude, as well as some of the Buddhism fundamental teachings. Practitioners are encouraged to be aware of the presently arising mind and body phenomena throughout the day in any posture. The purpose is to develop understanding of mind with naturally cultivated mindfulness in an environment similar to our daily life. In addition to the mindfulness meditation, Jessica will instruct and guide the practice of Loving-kindness, compassion, Joy and Equanimity daily.
This retreat will be taught in Chinese from Sept 22 – 27, and English from Sept 28 – Oct 1. Hence，you can apply for the periods based on your language and overall duration preference. On the other hand, individual discussions can be arranged according to your need if you attend the whole retreat i.e. English guidance and discussion can be arranged during the Chinese teaching period for English participants attending the whole retreat.
Format: Sitting and walking meditation will be alternately carried out throughout the day with a flexible schedule. Noble silent is observed throughout. Breakfast, lunch, and very light dinner/refreshment with fruits are provided in the evening.
For the beginners, this is also a good opportunity to learn about Buddhism meditation.
