Essential Meditation

Sunday, 20 February 2022 to Sunday, 27 February 2022

On this retreat we will be teaching the essential principles of meditation to help you work effectively in your practice, refresh your motivation, and inspire your effort.

It is suitable for both men who are relatively new to Triratna who have a regular meditation practice and who want to establish it on a solid foundation, as well as to experienced meditators who wish to breathe new life into their practice.

All areas of working in meditation will be covered from posture, balanced effort and overcoming the hindrances to access concentration, the dhyanas and insight. The emphasis will be practical, experiential and on learning meditation skills that one can then take away and apply in daily meditation practice.

Details and Timings

The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at 10.00am.
