Clearing the Mind is for both experienced and new meditators. We will explore practical techniques that increase deep relaxation and steady concentration. Simple, how-to tools will combine with traditional Buddhist teachings to strengthen calm abiding in meditation practice.
On Friday night we will explore three specific techniques for calm abiding that attendees can add to their meditation tool kit; namely, Single Pointed Concentration, Moment to Moment Awareness and Luminous Mind. These three techniques can be used individually or in succession as a means to deepening concentration. Each will be explained with practical applications and anecdotes to strengthen daily and communal practice. The techniques will then be further explored and experienced through a period of guided meditation. The evening will also include an opportunity to meet in small groups to discuss individual preferences for the practices both individually and in tandem. Friday night and Saturday will provide ample opportunities for practice.
No registration is needed for Friday night.
