Wise Compassion

Weekend Insight Meditation Retreat

Weekend Insight Meditation Retreat with Padraig Cotter & Jackie Carrol

Fri 2nd Dec - Sun 4th Dec

This retreat will feature an emphasis on compassion and how it can be supported and balanced by wisdom


Compassion without wisdom is sentimental and exhausting, while wisdom without compassion is cold and aloof. When in harmony, they enable an unentangled participation in the midst of the joys and sorrows of life.


The retreat will be an exploration of different ways that nurture compassion, wisdom, and the potentials of the human heart.


There will be periods of reflections, sitting, walking, & standing meditations, as well as space for questions and interactions.

The retreat will be held in Noble Silence and participants will be keeping the Eight Precepts. To find out more about coming on retreat please see here: http://www.sunyatacentre.org/coming-on-retreat-at-sunyata/.
