Labor Day Weekend Retreat: Developing Meditative Concentration, with Ven. Thubten Chodron
|August 30, 2013 5:00 pm||to||September 2, 2013 3:00 pm|
Concentration is the ability to remain single-pointedly on a constructive object of meditation with a blissful and pliant mind for as long as one wishes. If you’re like most meditators, that definition is a far cry from your actual meditative experience.
For most of us, distracting thoughts continually flash through the mind like a fireworks display.
Join Ven. Thubten Chodron for instruction and practice on using a visualized image of the Buddha as your meditation object, and to explore the helps and hindrances in cultivating meditative stabilization.
