Concentration Life Retreat


The capacity to concentrate or focus is one of the bedrock skills of the contemplative life. In this retreat we’ll focus on focus–the ability to relax the mind and unify it with whatever meditative subject we’re exploring. We’ll discuss the benefits, styles, and dimensions of concentration while establishing a practice that allows us to deepen this capacity in everyday life. We’ll also look at how to skillfully apply the concentrated mind to the development of wisdom and to our 21st century information-rich lives.
