Join us for an exploration into the theory and practice of Vipassana meditation: the relationship between Shamata and Vipassana will be highlighted and practiced.
Vipassana means to see things as they really are: achieving insight through mindfulness. Vipassana meditation utilizes the skills of Shamata within the process of enquiry.
In these weekends, we will directly question our lived experience within the framework of the three marks of existence and the four close applications of mindfulness.
“Minding Closely – the four Applications of Mindfulness” by B. Alan Wallace is referred to throughout the weekends. It would be beneficial, though not necessary, to have access to a copy of this clear and straightforward presentation.
All are welcome to this introductory course which will be of benefit to beginners and those who wish to deepen their practice.
Although these weekends are developmental in nature, each weekend can be of benefit as a stand-alone teaching.
About the teacher
Ven. Mary Reavey: Born in Dundee, Scotland, Ven Mary was a staff nurse when she first encountered FPMT’s mother monastery at Kopan in Nepal in 1978. It was her love of adventure and trekking that led her to this place, but Ven. Mary ended up attending a month-long course taught by Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, who emphasized the importance of meditation and taking complete responsibility for your own actions and their effects.
In 2001/02, Ven. Mary took ordination as a nun with Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Receiving her Bikshuni ordination in 2015, Ven. Mary has also taught in prisons and at hospitals and hospices.
Until 2012, Venerable taught meditation and Buddhist philosophy at Buddhist centres and hospitals in the UK. Over the years, Ven. Mary has undertaken and led many meditation retreats. She completed a one-year solitary retreat in 2014 and completes a three-month personal retreat each year.
This event is organised in collaboration with Lhagsam Meditation center in Zurich.
