Join the Scottsdale Sangha for a day of Vipassana (Mindfulness) Meditation with a focus on enhancing kind and non-judgmental awareness. Instruction and guidance will be balanced with periods of silent practice throughout the day.
The day will include alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, instructions and guidance in Vipassana and Brahma Vihara practices, 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 and has spent over a 15 months in intensive retreat with senior Western and Monastic teachers in the Insight Tradition.
Genevieve leads the Insight Meditation Scottsdale sangha. She is trained in Radiant Heart Qi Gong by Teja Fudo Myoo Bell. Genevieve also teaches mindfulness and the MBSR program in secular settings in the Phoenix area through Solution Mindfulness. She was recently selected to serve as a Mentor for mindfulness teachers-in-training under Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach.
