This silent meditation retreat will emphasize a balance of mindfulness, concentration, calmness, and investigation. Instructions will encourage mindfulness of breath, body, and mind to enhance the potential for liberating insight. By cultivating a calm, balanced awareness, we can dissolve any suffering that may entangle our hearts and discover our freedom in the midst of things.

Shaila Catherine is the founder of Insight Meditation South Bay, a Buddhist meditation center in Silicon Valley in California (imsb.org). She has been practicing meditation since 1980, accumulating more than eight years of silent retreat experience, and has taught internationally since 1996.
