InsightLA Meditation & Silent Retreat in Spain
GRANADA, SPAIN - AUGUST 19TH - 25TH, 2018
Join InsightLa and Celeste Young in this Meditation & Silent retreat in the sunny Spain.
Quiet your mind and open your heart in this secluded retreat, surrounded by nature in the beautiful Andalusion region of Southern Spain, located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Through periods of silent sitting and walking meditation, as well as gentle yin yoga and other mindful movement practices, we will deepen our Insight practice together. We will tend to the heart and mind with compassionate mindfulness and strengthen our connection with ourselves and each other, with time for enjoying nature, deep rest, and practice.
The structure of an Insight meditation retreat includes time for sitting meditation, walking meditation, rest, mindful eating, and Dharma talks along with some instruction and guidance, and short practice discussion meetings to support you within the container of a silent retreat. This helps us to deepen our connection to our direct moment to moment experience, cultivate continuity of mindfulness, and awaken the heart and mind for greater ease, balance and clarity in daily life.
Prices all inclusive aside from airfare, including accommodations, 3 delicious, healthy meals served daily, and teachings, movement practices and instruction.
