What is the Meditation & Concentration Practice Retreat about?
The practice of meditation and concentration has two supportive aspects: practicing with Abhyasa and Vairagya which is essentially practicing with active effort and a simultaneous ease and letting go. While a lot of our mindfulness and meditation practice is about relaxing, observing and letting go of thoughts, the practice of right effort is equally important. The One-Day Meditation & Concentration Practice Retreat is therefore dedicated to the Abhyasa aspect, or the aspect of right effort
Concentration practice requires consistent and right effort. Concentration can be maintained on gross objects and subtle objects of awareness. The more one-pointed the meditation, the more the mind is refined and can perceive and stay with that which is subtle. Ultimately the objective of meditation is to be able to have deeper insight, which can only be achieved with a refined and concentrated mind.
This Half-Day Meditation & Concentration Practice Retreat will focus on:
~ Best practices and techniques to improve and increase concentration while practicing breathing meditation
~ Meditating for longer duration (over 30 minutes)
~ Spending time in silence.
~ Questions and answers pertaining to meditation technique
While the course is open to both new and old practitioners, it is not recommended for you if you have difficulty sitting in meditation for even a brief period of time.
