SIMS at University Friends Meeting House (4001 9th Ave NE, Seattle, WA, 98105) (
Concentration or serenity meditation (samatha) is one of three major practices of the Buddhist path, which also includes sila and vipassana. In concentration practice, we return awareness to one object of meditation to the exclusion of everything else, unifying the mind stream. This daylong offers an overview of samatha as taught in the lineage of Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw of Burma, considered to be the leading living teacher of samatha/jhanas.
