Retreat Title: Wake Up - Just Sit

Led by Rijumitra

When asked how to do just sitting, Sangharakshita replied: you just sit.

Try this out, however, and it can seem that just sitting is just endless mental rumination. This is prapanca – compulsive, deluded thinking. It can be both frustrating and painful and it certainly isn’t what just sitting is about.

On this retreat we’ll be exploring some direct and very effective ways to let the proliferation die down so that wakeful, spacious awareness opens up. This fresh wakefulness is what just sitting and receptivity is really about. Once you’ve discovered how to access it, you really can just sit and wake up to what you are, ‘just what is’, beyond the prapanca.

This retreat is suitable for people who have been meditating for at least 3 years
