Join the Scottsdale Sangha for a day of Vipassana (Mindfulness) Meditation. Basic Instructions will be offered, as well guidance and investigation into how to work with challenges and obstacles in the context of practice. As we learn to find internal balance in the midst of the storms of our experience in this way, we can also begin to bring this ease into our daily lives regardless of circumstances.
This daylong retreat will offer alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, instructions and guidance in Vipassana practice, an afternoon session of gentle, mindful Qi Gong and a Dharma talk. This retreat is appropriate for beginning meditators as well as experienced practitioners with a balance of instruction and silence.
The retreat will be led by Genevieve Tregor:
Genevieve has been practicing Vipassana meditation since 2008 with an emphasis on long-term retreat practice; she has spent over a 15 months in intensive retreat with senior Western and Monastic teachers in the Insight Tradition. She was recently selected to serve as a Faculty Mentor under Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach for the 2019 -2021 Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program.
Genevieve leads the Insight Meditation Scottsdale sangha. She is also trained in Radiant Heart Qi Gong by Teja Fudo Myoo Bell. Genevieve also teaches mindfulness in secular settings (MBSR) and Qi Gong in the Scottsdale and Phoenix area through her business Solution Mindfulness.
