Retreat Title: Wake Up: Just Sit

Led by Rijumitra

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

While this remark is undoubtedly on the nail, for many the practice of just sitting, can seem to be ‘just’ endless mental rumination. This is prapanca – compulsive, deluded thinking – which definitely isn’t just sitting, nor what Sangharakshita’s remark was getting at.

How then to approach this apparently very simple practice? 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’ just sit, alive to what you are and ‘just what is’, beyond the prapanca.

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