In concentration and serenity meditation (samatha), we return awareness to one object of meditation to the exclusion of everything else, unifying the mind stream. This reveals with heightened clarity the habitual patterns that cause us to suffer, called “purification of mind.” A laser-like awareness can develop, leading to profound peace, stillness, and joy, as well as the meditative absorptions known as jhāna. We will explore the practice path, the relationship of samatha and vipassanā, and working with striving and hindrances.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
