Releasing the Self, Freeing its Demons

A One Day Insight Meditation Retreat in Cambridge with

Rob Burbea

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

Friends Meeting House, 12 Jesus Lane, Cambridge, CB5 8BA

(by kind permission of the Society of Friends)

Registration: 9.30 am Start: 10.00 am Finish: 5.00 pm

Cost: £10 in advance*, £12 on the day (+ teacher Dana**)

[Concessions (students, unwaged, retired) £7]

* To book in advance, please email cambridgeinsight@gmail.com for a booking form which has all the details required. But bare in mind that you are always welcome to turn up on the day.

** The registration fee only covers running costs and travelling expenses. Teachers rely on the financial generosity of retreatants for their living; there will be an opportunity to offer contributions (dana) on the day.

Rob Burbea is Teacher in Residence at Gaia House Meditation Centre in Devon, and is a member of the Gaia House Teacher Council. He has been practising and studying Buddhist meditation and Dharma since 1985 with teachers in England and the USA. He is co-founder of SanghaSeva, an organisation dedicated to exploring the Dharma through service work internationally. You can download some of his dharma talks here.

Please bring your own cushion or stool and mat, if desired, (there are plenty of chairs), and a packed lunch (tea and coffee will be provided). If coming by car, Park and Ride is a way to avoid difficult and expensive parking in Cambridge.

Day retreats offer a chance to practise meditation and mindfulness in a supportive environment. They include alternate periods of sitting and walking meditation, and the teacher provides guidance through meditation instruction, a Dharma (teaching) talk, and a question and answer session. Beginners are offered additional instruction and assistance. For experienced meditators the day is an opportunity to refresh and deepen practice. The retreats are normally held in silence.
