The Seven Factors of Awakening
With Barry Gillespie
October 14 - 18, 2020
The Seven Factors of Awakening is one of the Buddha’s main teachings. It describes the progressive path that a practitioner takes through successive wholesome mind states, from Mindfulness to Equanimity, leading to Enlightenment. It is important to understand this teaching and experience its development in the heart/mind. This is a source of great joy.
During the course of this Vipassana Meditation retreat students will learn the Seven Factors, how to recognize the arising of these mind states, and how to work with them skillfully.
