Shamatha and the Three Solitudes: Uncovering True Nature
Arrival after 3pm on June 8th
This retreat will provide clear and concise daily instruction in this foundational meditation practice and its nine stages of ever-deepening mental abiding. Exploration and observation of the “three solitudes” of body, speech, and mind will augment sustained independent practice. Students will learn how to meditate sitting, standing, walking, and lying down. Daily teachings will allow time for question and answer sessions and participants have the option of having brief, practice-oriented personal interviews with the teacher.
In order to maintain the integrity of the practice space, students must commit to participating fully throughout each day to the prescribed meditation practices, maintaining silence throughout, and abstaining from the use of phones, computers, tablets, music players, etc. for the duration of the retreat.
