What is Insight?

Within the Buddha’s teachings, mindfulness is practised as a means to insight, the wisdom that leads to the deepest freedom of heart and mind. In this five day retreat we will explore different ways of understanding and experiencing insight, so that we can live our lives with greater calm, clarity and compassion.

Together, we will cultivate insight through a mix of guided and silent sitting meditation, walking meditation, group discussion and individual meetings with the teacher.
There will also be a period of optional, gentle mindful movement each day.

This retreat is offered by the Auckland Insight group as an opportunity to strengthen sangha or community. To help keep the retreat registration cost low, daily cooking and cleaning tasks are done by the retreat participants, supervised by the retreat manager. These work periods are an opportunity to practice integrating mindfulness into daily life while supporting the smooth running of the retreat.

The retreat is provided entirely by volunteers, and while we intend to be as helpful as possible, the ability to provide special meals is limited. Registrants with genuine medical dietary needs should email the Retreat Manager:
