November 13-19, 2021, A Virtual Retreat with Video stream & Audio stream/download

Like all other branches of science, the science of mind must be primarily based on the rigorous observation of natural phenomena. Much as astronomers rely on the telescope, so do contemplatives rely on the power of samadhi to explore the nature and potentials of the mind.

Please see below for additional retreat information.

This event is co-sponsored with our friends at CCN, The Contemplary and Shambhala Mountain Center.

THE SCIENCE OF THE MIND:
A Practical Inquiry Into the Nature of Mind Through Traditional Buddhist Meditation

November 13-19, 2021, A Virtual Retreat with Video stream & Audio stream/download

Like all other branches of science, the science of mind must be primarily based on the rigorous observation of natural phenomena. Much as astronomers rely on the telescope, so do contemplatives rely on the power of samadhi to explore the nature and potentials of the mind.

During this retreat, we will develop shamatha (“serene presence of mind”) drawn from multiple traditions of Buddhism to develop an inner sense of ease, stillness, and clarity of attention. These are the indispensable foundation for vipashyana (“insight meditation”) and all other meditative practices. While satisfaction can never be found outside in such things as wealth, status, and power, this inner meditative discipline is a direct route to genuine well-being.

Lama Alan will be with us LIVE for three Q & A Sessions during the retreat, all other sessions will not be live. You will receive audio and video files daily to view at your convenience.
