Zazen: a seated meditation posture

Zazendo: the Way of Insight Meditation

The purpose of this 2-day Zazendo Retreat at the Rosewell Centre is to help you develop insight to harmonise your daily life, leading to inner peace.

You will learn to create tools for coping with the mechanisms of habit and addiction which can cause unnecessary disharmony.

Beginners are welcome. You need no experience of any kind of meditation. There are no pre-requisities and no preparation is necessary.
