a meditation retreat at the Dhamma Vihara.

  • Subject: The Happiness of a Beautiful Mind.

  • Teacher: Venerable Sayalay Dīpaṅkara Therī

  • Begins: Saturday, August 8, 2020 at 6:00 PM. Arrival at 5:00 PM.

  • Ends: Thursday, August 13, 2020 at 9:00 AM.

  • Description: This meditation retreat is open to all those interested in learning how to cultivate a beautiful mind – that is, a mind free of afflictive states and that is both alert and skillful. The natural outcome of such a mind will be an increase of wholesome mind states like: tranquility and wisdom, and actions such as: generosity and virtue. For the experienced meditator, this retreat offers a rare and very special opportunity to explore and deepen one’s practice guided by a meditation master. Thanks to the extensive experience of Venerable Sayalay Dīpaṅkara, retreatants will be able to benefit from expert guidance on Samatha meditations that lead to jhānas - absorption concentrates - and Vipassanā meditation. Dhamma talks, meditation instructions, and group or personal interviews will also be offered. The retreat will be conducted in Noble Silence with alternate periods of sitting and walking meditation. Detailed instructions on: mindfulness of breathing (ānāpānassati), loving-kindness meditation (mettā bhāvanā) and possibly other meditation subjects will be offered during the retreat. Description of the Retreat (PDF – Spanish-English)
