Concentration Meditation
with Ven. Sangye Khadro
Excellent retreat for beginners and long-term meditators.

We are delighted that well-known teacher, Ven. Sangye Khadro, will lead this retreat. Due to scheduling conflicts, Ven. Chodron will not be available that weekend.

Concentration is the ability to remain single-pointedly on a constructive object of meditation with a blissful and pliant mind for as long as one wishes. Concentration is a mental factor that can be developed steadily over time. Whatever your present level of concentration, you can start where you are.

Join Ven. Sangye Khadro—experienced meditator and author of the best-selling, How to Meditate —for instruction and practice is stabilizing meditation.

California-born, Ven. Sangye Khadro ordained as a Buddhist nun at Kopan Monastery in Nepal  in 1974, and took the full (bhikshuni) ordination in 1988. She has studied Buddhism with many great masters including  Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Lama Yeshe, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Geshe Ngawang Dhargyey, and Khensur Jampa Tegchok. She  began teaching in 1979 and was a resident teacher at Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Singapore for 11 years. She is the author several books, including How to Meditate, now in its 17th printing.
