Insight Meditation Retreat - Cultivating Wisdom & Awareness 
9th – 16th June 2017
Teacher: Subhana Barzaghi and Alan Bassal
Venue: ‘Sangsurya’ – Byron Bay
Insight meditation allows us to examine the habitual patterns of mind that create confusion, anxiety and pain. Through the practice of calmness, mindfulness and inquiry we can cultivate wisdom and open the heart.
Inquiry awakens us to our true nature, allowing a sense of profound ease and connection with life. 
This is a silent retreat with the retreat program consisting of sitting, walking and guided meditations, meditation instruction, group and individual meetings with teachers, open inquiry sessions, evening Dharma talks, mindfulness work periods, free time and optional yoga periods.
This retreat is for both experienced and new meditators
