Level 1 Retreat

The Pointing Out Way Level 1 Retreat


Establishing the path to awakening


An 8-day Meditation Retreat with Daniel P Brown and Gretchen Nelson

Join Daniel Brown and Gretchen Nelson in this open level course to explore the openness of being and the foundational practices of meditation.


Level 1 retreats present a full set of instructions for Mahamudra practice in a highly condensed manner. By emphasizing concentration early in the retreat, students experience a momentum for practice that often allows at least a taste of realization of the nature of the mind as being pointed out.


Participants are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing, and to bring a blanket and mat to lay on. Should participants have a meditation cushion or bench, these are recommended – otherwise, chairs will be available.



Dates: 19 to 26 March, 2020


Commences at 6pm, Thursday 19 March 2020
Concludes at Midday, 26 March 2020


Venue: Treacy Centre, Parkville, Melbourne


Format: The retreat is undertaken in a non-residential format. Attendees are requested to make their own arrangements for accommodation and meals.
