Retreat at the Beach: Developing Concentration
Fri. January 15 – Mon. January 18, 2016
Join us for a meditation retreat at the beach, where you’ll receive teachings on how to develop your concentration. During the mornings, we will be silent, which allows us to more easily focus within and let go of distractions. After the morning silence, there will be opportunity for discussion with spiritual friends at lunch and between retreat sessions in the afternoon. Take walks on the beautiful beach nearby and contemplate the analogy of your mind being like an ocean and your thoughts, like waves. All levels of experience are welcome!
