Sit, Breathe, Wake Up!
Building a Powerful Meditation Practice

The focus of this weekend will be on how to succeed in meditation.  No matter what style or method of meditation you practice, whether you’re just a beginner or have been practicing for years, if you ever experience agitation, distraction and mind-wandering in your meditation or find yourself getting drowsy and dull, then this weekend retreat is for you.

The retreat will consist of a series of guided meditations, through which participants will learn specific techniques for overcoming these and other obstacles that stand in the way of becoming an accomplished meditator. Culadasa will also guide you through a variety of other practices, including Cultivating Joy, Loving Kindness, Finding the Still-point, and Realizing the Witness.

Interspersed among the guided meditations, which have been a popular part of past teaching retreats, will be question and answer sessions. We will also explore what it means to be mindful, both on the cushion and in daily life, and how mindfulness is cultivated.

About two-thirds of our time will be spent in guided meditations, and one-third in discussion.
