Aspects of Concentration in Mindfulness Practice
Five Thursday evenings
Sept 18 – Oct 16 7:30pm – 9:00pm

The Buddha taught that one who has cultivated samadhi, usually translated as concentration, see things as they are. This five-week series of talks and guided meditations will explore the practice of samadhi and how it relates to vipassana practice. Topics will include: the benefits of concentration practice, factors that support the deepening of concentration, how concentration relates to vipassana, and the role for concentration in developing wisdom.
