“Whether we sit with our arms folded this way and our legs crossed that way is of little consequence. But it is extremely important to check and see if whatever meditation we do is an actual remedy for our suffering.” Lama Yeshe

P1140087Join us in a day dedicated to cultivating the practice of shamatha (calm abiding) meditation. Shamatha meditation helps you establish attentional balance and free your mind from disturbing emotions. It is a foundational meditation practice that builds concentration, clarity, inner peace, harmony and balance.

This retreat will be facilitated by John Bruna. It is beginner friendly and also beneficial for seasoned meditators. We will focus on developing the building blocks of shamatha, relaxation, stability, and clarity, using 3 different methods of practice – breath, settling the mind in its natural state, and awareness of awareness.
