Retreat Title: Dhyana through the body
Led by Tejananda
If your approach to a meditation practice doesn't seem to be working, do you just carry on as before, hoping that it will improve? It's rather unlikely that this will work!
This is as true of dhyana (absorption) practice as of any other area. So, on this retreat, we'll be suggesting approaches we've found to be helpful and effective in accessing dhyana. This is likely to involve questioning not only our own views and approaches, but some of what the tradition has to say about dhyana. Instead, we'll proceed on the basis of asking "What, in our experience, is and is not actually helpful?"
We have found that by becoming alive to the immediacy of our sensate experience, resources for entering absorption can be discovered right here, already present - just waiting to be noticed. We'll explore this in direct experience by delving into the relation between body and breath, and between body, awareness and metta.
This retreat is suitable for people who have been meditating for at least 3 years
