Concentration is the life blood of meditation. Unless we significantly improve our concentration, we shall find it difficult to make progress on the spiritual path. Lack of progress often leads to disappointment and discouragement. Even in our day to day activities, we need good concentration in order to be proficient and competent. This guided retreat will help us train in improving our concentration. Thus, this is a special opportunity to improve both the quality and power of our meditations and the subsequent karmic effects that we shall eventually experience.

We all have a mind, but very few of us know anything about our own consciousness. We know some rudimentary and generally  superficial aspects of its nature and function, but this knowledge does not enable us to control it and prevent it from experiencing negative intentions and reactions. Buddha stated ‘If you realize your own mind, you will become a Buddha; you should not seek Buddhahood elsewhere.’ This retreat will focus on carefully observing our own mind, so as to clearly notice how conscious awareness arises and ceases. Such experience gradually leads us to a direct realization of emptiness – the permanent liberation from all suffering. Find out how and why.
