Relaxed Focused Attention: Quieting the Mind, Expanding our Clarity and Opening the Heart

A Two Day Meditation Retreat with Lama Pat Berube

March 17-18, 2018  9:00am – 5:00pm daily

Join us for a weekend of deepening our meditation.  Through Shamatha meditation, we develop a relaxed, focused attention that brings clarity to our experience and a lightness and joy to our heart.  Like the ebb and flow of the sea and the natural rise and fall of our breath, there is an immediacy and continuity to our moment-to-moment experience. As difficult mind states melts away, we begin to develop mental balance and our practice opens us to our innate joyful presence

In this retreat, Lama Pat will take participants through the stages of relaxed focused attention with teachings and meditations for each stage. This retreat is open to new and experienced meditators.  These practical meditation techniques are accessible and can benefit anyone who practices them.  All are welcome.  If you have any questions, please contact us.
