Meditation helps a person to acquire new positive habits and improve self-confidence, adding a touch of dignity and sacredness to our lives. It has a proven record in its ability to improve health, transform negative situations, awaken happiness, and give a clear perspective on life. Calm Abiding Meditation helps to become relaxed, focused and peaceful. It enables you to identify the true causes of happiness and recover from stress, anxiety and depression. When Calm abiding is sustained well, it naturally progresses to experience Special Insight and right view. In this retreat, these two techniques will be combined with special emphasis on the simple, direct and profound Single A meditation.
Having undertaken n extensive retreat in the Tibetan Buddhist monastic tradition and taught in the west for many years, Rinpoche is a master in the subject of Buddhist meditation.
