As we cultivate concentration, we develop purification, tranquility and equanimity of mind and heart. These qualities prepare the ground for a penetrating insight into the nature of existence. This course will offer an introduction to and support for the practice of concentration (samatha in Pali), as taught by Burmese meditation master Pa Auk Sayadaw.

Open to both new and experienced meditators, the retreat will consist of alternate periods of silent sitting and walking meditation, daily dharma talks, and small group practice interviews.

An optional daily period of yoga will be offered by Éowyn Ahlstrom.
