Labor Day Meditative Concentration Retreat

August 30 @ 3:00 pm - September 2 @ 2:00 pm PDT

Buddhist nun in gold background

A motionless figure seated cross-legged, eyes lowered, and radiating peace: this is, perhaps, the most universal image of Buddhist meditation. It may look simple, but that concentrated state comes from skilled instruction and lots of practice. And anyone can learn to do it.

Meditative concentration can be developed steadily over time. Join us for a weekend of instruction and practice. This retreat is an excellent retreat for beginners and long-term meditators.

Ven. Thubten Chodron leads this retreat, which is held in noble silence.Venerable Thubten Chodron
