Paticca-samuppada and jhāna are dependent co-origination and the meditative absorptions. This retreat combines the two main elements of the Buddha’s model of liberation: cultivating the meditative absorptions (jhānas), which lead to calm clarity, along with insight into the dependent co-origination (paticca-samuppada) of phenomena. We will look at selected texts from the Pali suttas, including the famous Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta, to highlight both meditation practice and the teachings of dependent co-origination. This course is limited to those who have completed at least two one-week or longer silent vipassana retreats.
Enrollment in this course will be by lottery. The lottery will close on May 4, and lottery participants will be notified of the results by email on May 11th.
