The Stillness Within: A Retreat on Developing Concentration
If we are new to meditation, or even having practiced for some time, our mind is largely distracted and unclear. It’s difficult to stay focused on our object of meditation for very long, and it is not easy to return to our object when we forget it! We can improve the quality of our meditation, by improving our concentration. By learning how to train our mind in the proper methods, and then putting those techniques into practice happily and consistently, the quality of our meditations will definitely improve. By gaining a taste of deeper meditation on retreat, we can be more inspired and confident to practice meditation in daily life.
Everyone is welcome!
