Weekend Calm Abiding Meditation Retreat with Tyler Dewar

January 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - January 26, 2020 @ 12:30 pm

Please join us for a weekend-long meditation retreat in which we will focus on practicing key techniques of the meditation known as calm abiding (Sanskrit: shamatha). The practice of calm abiding gives us pragmatic and accessible tools to ease the coarse distractions and busyness of the mind and to bring forward the mind’s innate ability to relax, have greater focus, and enjoy more and more contentment. This weekend will feature teachings and guided meditations by Mitra Tyler Dewar, along with ample time to experience and get to know our own mind in a supportive and peaceful space. The techniques presented will draw from those that are practiced in the context of the curriculum of Nalandabodhi’s Path of Meditation.

It is recommended that participants of the retreat already have six months to a year’s worth of meditation experience.

Calm abiding is the basis of all other meditation practices within Buddhism, and its qualities can be refreshed and further stabilized at any time on our spiritual path. Therefore, experienced meditators of any level are also warmly invited as well!
