Labor Day Weekend Retreat

Friday, August 31 @ 4:00 pm - Monday, September 3 @ 2:00 pm

Concentration Meditation
with Ven. Thubten Chodron
Excellent retreat for beginners and long-term meditators.

Concentration is the ability to remain single-pointedly on a constructive object of meditation with a blissful and pliant mind for as long as one wishes. Concentration is a mental factor that can be developed steadily over time. Whatever your present level of concentration, you can start where you are.

Join Ven. Thubten Chodron for instruction and practice on using a visualized image of the Buddha as your meditation object and to examine what gets in the way of stable concentration.

dana offering and registration form are requested to reserve your place for the retreat.

Arrive by 3:00 on Friday. Retreat begins with a live-streamed Lamrim teaching that begins promptly at 5:55. Retreat ends after 2:00 on Monday.
