Emptiness: A Meditation and Study Retreat with Guy Armstrong, Gil Fronsdal, Sally Clough Armstrong

November 11-18

The teachings, practices, and realizations of Emptiness have been important themes in Buddhism from the early days of Theravada on through the development of the Mahayana and Vajrayana schools. In this retreat we will introduce and explore the many meanings and implications of emptiness in Buddhist thought and practice through talks, readings, reflections, guided meditations, and group discussions.  To support the study aspect of the retreat, there will be two talks a day, in the morning and evening, as well as group discussions. To support the meditation, the retreat will include regular sitting and walking periods and will be held in silence apart from the talks, discussions and interviews.
Prerequisite(s): This retreat is suitable for those who have sat a total of 20 days in silent vipassana retreats.
