On Sat, March 29, 9:30am - 4:30 pm, Deb Kerr and I will be leading a daylong retreat on concentration practice at the BVUM church. This is a chance to sit with members of our sangha and others. Please register and save the date.
Deb and I will offer guidance to develop greater concentration and serenity. It will be a day of silence (including the lunch period) with sitting & walking meditation. There will be some sitting instructions, very brief talks by the teachers and opportunities to ask questions. Bring a bag lunch.
This coming Sunday, March 16, I will give a dharma talk during our sangha meeting on the subject of concentration. This will be a good opportunity to explore the purpose of concentration and the techniques for developing it.
So we can send you updated information about the retreat, please register at: Meditation Daylong Retreat
If you have ever wished you could concentrate better, I hope you'll be able to attend the talk this Sunday and the retreat two Saturdays later. If you miss the talk, it will be on our web site by the end of next week.
