Mindfulness Meditation Retreat with Ven. Ajahn Ariyasilo from Amaravati Buddhist Monastery, UK
Saturday, April 14th - Sunday, April 15rd, 2012
The purpose of mindfulness meditation is not to create a system of beliefs, but rather to give guidance on how to see clearly into the nature of the mind. In this way one gains first-hand understanding of the way things are, without reliance on opinions or theories - a direct experience, which has its own vitality. It also gives rise to the sense of deep calm that comes from knowing something for oneself, beyond any doubt.
Date: SAT 14th APRIL - SUN 15TH APRIL 2012
Venue: Ranelagh, Dublin 6. To see the map click here.
