Unification of Mind: Concentration Retreat

The retreat will focus on the cultivation of samadhi, or unification of mind. Instruction will be given on using the breath as a primary object of awareness. Loving-kindness meditation will also be offered, brightening the heart/mind and supporting wise concentration.

The teachers will have practice meetings with retreatants, so individuals have personalized support for their practice. There will be daily vipassana meditation instructions, as well as evening talks on the Buddha’s teachings.
