During this special weekend retreat we will be guided in a series of clear and joyful meditations on the nature of the mind. Through training in meditation on the nature of the mind we gain the ability to easily pacify our mental disturbances and distractions, and we create powerful causes to experience deep and stable inner peace and contentment. Eventually, through continued practice of these meditations we can accomplish the powerful and blissful concentration of tranquil abiding. This retreat is open to all levels of experience. Even those who are new to meditation can experience great results from the practices we will engage in during this weekend event.
