More Info / Registration

The jhānas (meditative absorptions) are a method of developing one-pointed concentration taught in the Theravādan Buddhist tradition. This intensive 12-day retreat will emphasize the application of the jhānas in a regular sitting practice and is intended for experienced meditators with prior retreat experience. It will focus on the teaching of this technique and the application of the jhānas for enhancing insight practice. The retreat will be held in Noble Silence with sitting and walking meditation and personal interviews.

Jay will be co-teaching this retreat with Mary Aubry, a fellow student of Leigh Brasington, in the style of the Ven. Ayya Khema.
