Guatemala: Annual Meditation Retreat
May 9, 2014 - May 18, 2014
“Kasinas,” “mandalas” and “psychedelia” are all different words referring to tools for the development of the mind. Kasinas comprise part of the ten recollections taught by the Buddha; they are known to develop calm and concentration while also leading to bliss. Using meditative objects — such as the four elements, colors and breathing — together we unlock the power of the here and now, opening the mind to its natural state: clear, radiant, spacious wonder.
A traditional Tibetan empowerment (or “Wong Kur”) for White Tara will be offered during this silent retreat. White Tara represents our connection with the transcendental, and is also known for her compassion, serenity, and ability to confer healing and longevity.
This silent meditation retreat is beneficial for all levels of practitioner, from the beginning meditation student to advanced practitioners. It includes two daily teachings with Sensei plus an opportunity for personal interviews as well as three daily group sits and time for personal practice. There will be a one hour yoga class each day with our beloved and skillful teacher, Rae Ishe.
Villa Sumaya has generously priced this retreat to make it accessible to all practitioners.
