The jhānas (meditative absorptions) are a method of developing one-pointed concentration taught in the Theravādan Buddhist tradition. This intensive retreat will emphasize the application of the jhānas in a regular sitting practice and is intended for meditators with prior retreat experience. It will focus on the teaching of this technique and the application of the jhānas for enhancing insight practice. The retreat will be held in Noble Silence with sitting and walking meditation and personal interviews.
