Program Description:

The jhānas (meditative absorptions) are a method of developing one-pointed concentration taught in the Theravādan Buddhist tradition. This intensive program 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. This program will be held in Noble Silence with sitting and walking meditation and personal interviews.


This program is for those who have completed at least two one-week or longer silent vipassana retreats.
