Concentration Retreat

Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Woodacre, CA

August 12-21, 2013
With Phillip Moffitt, Andrea Fella, Adrianne Ross, Donald Rothberg

Concentration (samadhi) defined as the collection and unification of the mind, was emphasized by the Buddha as one of the aspects of the Eightfold Path. It can bring joy to your practice and develop the skillful use of pleasure in the meditative process. Whatever your level of practice, you can improve your Insight Meditation (Vipassana) by strengthening your concentration skills. Your ability to concentrate will develop in response to the attention you give it.

This retreat offers a series of techniques for staying on the meditation object for extended periods of time. We will explore the factors of concentration that lead to the deep absorption states known as jhana. Teachers will also give instruction for utilizing concentration during insight practice.

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness: A non-silent Study and Practice Reteat

Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Woodacre, CA

With Andrea Fella, Tempel Smith
May 13-19, 2013

The Living Dharma retreat is intended for committed vipassana practitioners who wish to deepen their practice and understanding of the Buddha’s teachings through meditation, inquiry, study and sangha. Each year in this retreat, we offer some of the central teachings of the Buddha, and examine them in detail, especially regarding their relevance to our meditation practice and the experience of suffering and freedom in our lives. In 2013, the theme for the retreat will be the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. This teaching offers the Buddha’s main instructions for meditation, instructions that we work with to this day. During the week we will explore each of the Four Foundations through study, discussion and meditation practice.
