Aanapanasati-Samadhi Retreat in the Netherlands with Shaila Catherine
Theme: 
The teachings on this retreat will emphasize the development of concentration using the breath as the primary meditative object. The daily morning instruction session will introduce mindfulness with breathing as a concentration practice and will systematically develop the skills that can lead to the deep absorption states of jhana. Dhamma talks will explore a range of subjects to support the growth of wisdom and insight. This silent retreat is intended for experienced practitioners who have already developed some degree of skill working with hindrances and mindfulness or insight practices. There will be periods of sitting and walking meditation, dhamma teachings, question and answer sessions, and group and individual consultations with the teacher. 

Prerequisite: 
Pre-requisites include three prior meditation retreats. Prior to the retreat please read Focused and Fearless, by Shaila Catherine, and the Anapanasati Sutta https://suttacentral.net/mn118/en/bodhi

Attendance Request: 
Participants are asked to arrive at the start of the retreat, and depart at the end of the retreat. Please do not come late or leave early. 





Teacher: Shaila Catherine
