Closed Retreat restricted to practitioners on the 5 Year Insight course
Insight training really frees the mind. The power of Insight exposes the hidden forces that secretly trap us in the mind states that prevent freedom and happiness. The notion of there being hidden forces in our minds may be novel because most people would react with the comment “I know my mind – there are no hidden forces”. But, if we seriously begin insight training we will discover that this is not the case. The most powerful energies in us that dictate how we think and feel are the deep unseen ones – generally found within the unconscious, but also lurking closer to the surface in the subliminal layer.
