Insight Meditation Retreat with Ven. Yasavati Sayalay
Saturday, March 2nd and Sunday, March 3rd 2013
Vipassana (Insight), which means to see things as they really are, is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. Through direct experience, the nature of how one grows or regresses, how one produces suffering or frees oneself from suffering is understood. Life becomes characterised by increased awareness, non-delusion, self-control and peace.
Date: SAT 2ND MARCH - SUN 3RD MARCH 2013
