Insight Meditation Weekend Retreat with Heather Martin
January 19th and 20th, 2019
Registration opens Dec 17
Come and Meditate with others, in silence and friendship.
Let’s remain cool, calm and collected in the heat of the moment; in the unfolding crises of our home planet; in face of the latest news, so we can respond well to whatever comes our way with perspective, with care and, above all, with kindness.
Heather Martin has been meditating for 40 years, in various traditions. Theravada has been her main practice since 1981, when she trained in the style of SN Goenka, for 8 years. She has practiced Tibetan Dzogchen with Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Vipassana with Burmese Sayadaw U Tejaniya, and more recently the early Foundations of Mindfulness with scholar-monk Bikkhu Analayo.
She has been teaching retreats in North America since 2001, in Canada and the West Coast of the United States. She guides the Salt Spring Island Vipassana Community, where she has lived for 37 years.
She is a retired midwife and childbirth educator.
Heather emphasizes the practical application of these perennially brilliant teachings, with warm-heartedness, clarity and accessibility.
