Essential Meditation - Key Tools for an Effective Meditation Practice
At the beginning of March Satyaraja led a new retreat at Padmaloka, titled 'Essential Meditation'. The aim was to provide people with a foundational toolkit of principles and practical guidance to help them take full ownership of their meditation practice and therefore develop it to the next level.
The retreat covered all areas of working in meditation from posture, balanced effort and working on the hindrances, to access concentration, the dhyanas and insight.
The talks by Satyaraja, Dharmadipa and Surata, as well as some of the meditations, can be downloaded by clicking here.
I was on the retreat myself and was amazed at the extent to which people's meditation practices were transformed and enriched (including my own), just by emphasizing and applying these so called 'basics'.
During this time of uncertainty, maintaining an effective meditation practice is more important than ever; for ourselves, for others and for the world at large, so if you can I'd highly recommend putting some time aside to listen to these teachings.
Lots of love,
Prajnahridaya and the Padmaloka Community
