Three-Month Retreat - Part 1

The annual three-month course, including its six-week partials, is a special time for practice. Because of its extended length and ongoing guidance, it is a rare opportunity for students to deepen the powers of concentration, wisdom and compassion. Based on the meditation instructions of Mahasi Sayadaw and supplemented by a range of skillful means, this retreat will encourage a balanced attitude of relaxation and alertness, and the continuity of practice based on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.
