Event Details

YANAI POSTELNIK has practised and studied Insight Meditation and Buddhism since 1990 and has been teaching internationally for over 20 years. He is much inspired by the Thai forest tradition and the transformative power of the natural world. Yanai is a Core Faculty member of Insight Meditation Society, Massachusetts.

Details of the retreat

Insight Meditation is a simple technique derived directly from the teachings of the Buddha; by practising being present in each moment, our heart and mind awakens to deep peace and clarity. The retreat will be a day of sustained meditation, supported by an atmosphere of silence. All the retreats are suitable for beginners as well as those with experience of meditation practice. The retreat is led by a teacher from Gaia House and the structure of the day can vary. Typically the day includes periods of sitting and walking meditation, a dharma talk, and guidance on meditation provided by the teacher. Opportunities are provided to ask questions. The teachers are not paid but you can provide voluntary contributions on the day in the form of Dana.

Please arrive for registration between 9.15 – 9.45am.

The retreat finishes around 5pm. We ask that attendees commit to staying for the full day.

What to bring

The hall is heated but uncarpeted, so please bring warm clothing, and a mat or rug plus meditation stool or cushions if you wish to sit on the floor. There are chairs for use too if you prefer; these are the plastic stackable kind, so you may wish to bring a cushion or two for padding, (we have a few foam wedges available to borrow).


The lunch is held in silence. We invite you to bring your own vegan or vegetarian packed lunch. A selection of tea, herbal drinks, milk and soya milk will be provided on the day. There is also a fridge you can use.
