Clear Seeing. The Path of Analytic Meditation with Keith Rowan

Clear Seeing. The Path of Analytic Meditation with Keith Rowan

A seven day retreat – Friday 2nd to Friday 9th October 2020

What we see and what we think we are seeing are not necessarily the same thing. We experience a world of ‘things’, believe them to truly exist, judge them desirable or undesirable and act accordingly.

This is a mistaken view which is at the root of all of our difficulties.

This deeply habitual view arises from a lack of close analysis, an ignoring of what is in front of us in every moment. Through a step by step process of close examination of our ‘here and now’ we can begin to dissolve habitual assumptions and reveal a state naturally calm, open and satisfying.


$602 (or $86 per night) which provides food and accommodation.

$532 (or $76 per night) for Wangapeka members.

A donation (dana) for the teaching is optional. Keith offers these teachings freely to anyone interested. Attending for just the first weekend (or longer) is OK. The Wangapeka Educational Trust is able to offer financial assistance for accommodation in some cases. Please contact the caretaker to enquire

For more information about the retreat please contact Toby the Course Manager
