This program is now closed to new registrations.

This Mini Retreat is for experienced practitioners with at least one year of meditation experience.

Clear perception of moment-to-moment experience removes obscurities from our field of attention, like the parting of clouds revealing a bright blue sky. Similarly, letting go of any mistaken sense of ownership of passing experience can deepen our understanding of the way things truly are. By inclining the mind towards a deeply restful state of awareness, attention may open to joy and ease, sowing the seeds of awakening.

This April, join Tara Mulay as we explore the qualities of attention that define and refine our mindfulness practice and provide the ground for insight into the truth.

This program is offered live and will not be recorded.


About the Teacher

Tara Mulay

Tara Mulay’s teachings stem from the lineage of Mahasi Sayadaw. She has gratefully drawn influence from many other teachers within and outside of the Mahasi lineage, including Howard Cohn, Kamala Masters, Gil Fronsdal, Joseph Goldstein, Sayadaw U Tejaniya, and Ayya Anandabodhi. Tara practiced criminal defense law in California for over 20 years. She was a leader of Mission Dharma in San Francisco, and in 2016 she co-founded the San Francisco People of Color Insight Sangha. She remained a core teacher with the group until the spring of 2019, when she relocated to Western Massachusetts. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of Insight World Aid. Tara is of South Asian (Indian) descent. She felt initially drawn to dharma practice upon encountering the Buddha’s teachings rejecting social caste as a measure of worth and of capacity for awakening. She believes classical Buddhist practices, designed to cultivate compassion, non-greed, non-hatred, and non-delusion, are uniquely potent vehicles for empowering people in marginalized communities and effecting social change.
