Retreat Description:
Drawing on his canonical studies of early Buddhism, Bhikkhu Anâlayo will present his vision of how all four satipatthânas (ways of establishing mindfulness) can be practiced together. He will offer meditation instructions and lead various discussion periods. Ayya Anandabodhi and Shaila Catherine will offer evening dharma talks.

Participants are required to have sat at least two retreats of a week or more with a recognized insight meditation teacher. Please document this when registering.

The teachers ask that in preparation for this course, all participants read Bhikkhu Analayo's book, Perspectives on Satipatthana. We have a limited supply in the bookstore here at Spirit Rock. If you would prefer to order a copy online, please click here.

Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $35 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.
