This retreat is based on the great Buddhist teaching on mindfulness - the Satipatthana Sutta.
I have been leading an intensive meditation retreat on this theme at Taraloka almost every year for more than a decade. I love these retreats and never tire from delving ever more deeply into this simple yet profound text as a gateway to Insight – living in harmony with ‘the way things are’. It is as if the entire Buddhist path in contained in these teachings that lead to wholeness, clarity and an open heart. Indeed the Buddha himself said that we can gain Enlightenment in just seven days, if we practice the teachings contained in the Satipatthana Sutta as if our lives depended on it.
