Breathing Our Freedom
Weekend Retreat with
June 1, 2, and 3
Tempel visits from the San Francisco area where he is a senior teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in the Insight (Vipassana) lineage. Scroll down for his full bio.
In a teaching called the Mindfulness of Breathing Discourse (MN 118, Anapanasati Sutta) the Buddha gave one of his most detailed step by step instructions of how to develop meditation practice from simple awareness of breathing in and out, through a deep embodiment and concentration, to the development of liberating insights. During this weekend we will practice silent sitting and walking meditation throughout the day with some guided meditations, talks on this topic and time for Q&A.
Friday evening will be closed to the public if the retreat is full, please check the website the week prior to see if attending Friday only is an option.
