The Heart of Buddhist Meditation
Arrival after 3pm on July 5th
The beauty of the Hermitage, with its natural environment of field, forest ,and nearby ocean beaches is a peaceful backdrop for this silent practice retreat. Suitable for beginners as well as long-term practitioners, we will review the fundamentals of Calm-abiding (shamatha) and Intuitive Insight (vipasyana) meditation, as ways to engage in the Path of Awakening according to the Buddhist tradition.
Learn to concentrate, to still the mind, and to calm the restless thinking processes hrough the cultivation of lucid mindfulness, while at the same time gently awakening your innate insight, compassion, and wisdom. Gradually approach the blissful deeper Dhyana-states of meditation that naturally give rise to centered consciousness, opening of the heart, and compassionate realization in reflexive self-awareness. A meditative experience of stillness, joy and bliss.
The retreat will include both sitting and walking meditation, guided by Lama Rodney’s wise and gentle daily instruction. Personal interviews with Lama.
