Retreat in Netherlands, focus on concentration
July 16, 2017
Cultivating Concentration through Anapanasati Samadhi
July 16-27 (11 nights)
Guided by: Shaila Catherine
The teachings on this retreat will emphasize the development of concentration using the breath as the primary meditative object. The daily morning instruction session will introduce mindfulness with breathing as a concentration practice and will systematically develop the skills that can lead to the deep absorption states of jhana. Dhamma talks will explore a range of subjects to support the growth of wisdom and insight. This silent retreat is intended for experienced practitioners who have already developed some degree of skill working with hindrances and mindfulness or insight practices. There will be periods of sitting and walking meditation, dhamma teachings, question and answer sessions, and group and individual teacher consultations. Pre-requisites include three prior meditation retreats and reading Focused and Fearless, by Shaila Catherine.
