This event is meeting online. Zoom links are provided below.

This is a 2 part event. There is a dharma talk on Friday night and a daylong on Saturday.

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. The Friday night talk and Saturday 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.

Tina is a Guiding Teacher at Luminous Mind Sangha.
