Vipassana Retreat: Walking in the Buddha’s Footsteps
A 10-Day Silent Retreat, guided by the teachings of Bhante Vimalaramsi: ‘Walking in the Buddha’s Footsteps’
The Buddha has taught an ‘easy to understand’ practice that is comfortable, light and fun to learn. It leads you down the Noble Path to understand the true teaching. This teaching has both, “Samatha” (Tranquil Wisdom) and “Vipassana” (Insight) woven into the practice. Lay people can practice his antidote for suffering to manage the challenges they face in today’s world. By changing our minds, we change our lives.
TWIM – Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation takes you on a journey to experience a way out of much of the suffering you face today. Come and hear the Buddha’s own words as preserved in the Suttas. Begin to see what Buddha Gotama experienced in his own meditation and why he said, “We are the happy ones!” Reclaim your own internal peace and smile.
Founder Teacher of TWIM, Bhante Vimalaramsi is the co-founder of Dhamma Sukha Meditation Center in Missouri, USA. We recognize Bhante Vimalaramsi for reviving the most direct path to wisdom and awakening as taught by the Buddha. He teaches a very simple but highly comprehensive and effective practice.
