Weekend retreat for those new to retreats (and others)
This is an opportunity to spend a weekend exploring meditation and the dharma in a quiet environment. It is open to experienced meditators and those who have meditated but have little experience of overnight retreats. The program involves sitting meditations, meditation instruction, group and individual meetings with teachers.
About the teachers
Jonathan conducts six week Introduction to Meditation courses each year through SIM. Gawaine, a long-term member of the BlueGum Sangha, teaches at the Sydney Insight sanghas. They ran a similar retreat in 2015. See the Teachers page for more information.
In keeping with the 2,500 year old tradition the teachers are not paid for teaching the dharma. Dana is the practice of generosity through which we offer donations to our teachers as a sign of our respect for the teaching and its value in our lives.
Fee assistance and scholarships are available to all SIM retreats for people who need assistance paying the full fee and do not qualify for the concession.
