Event description

Description

What are the 'jhanas', the meditative absorptions taught by the Buddha? What's the point of practicing them? And are they really accessible to us?

Join us for this rare opportunity to explore Right Concentration with Leigh Brasington, author of the book ‘Right Concentration - A Practical Guide to the Jhānas’.

This nonresidential retreat includes dhamma talks, Q&A sessions, and time for silent meditation.
Open to all but best suited to those with a strong meditation practice.

The cost covers administrative expenses and direct costs but nothing for the teacher or organisers. You’ll have an opportunity to offer ‘dana’ (financial support for the teacher and organisers) at the end of the retreat.


Leigh Brasington has been practicing meditation since 1985 and is the senior American student of the late Ven. Ayya Khema. She confirmed his practice and requested that he begin teaching. Leigh assisted Ven. Ayya Khema starting in 1994, and has been leading retreats on his own since 1997 in both Europe and North America.

Please note that this is a non-residential retreat.

FAQs

Is there an age limit to enter the event?

Intended for adult learners, the minimum age for attendance is 18 years.

I can't make the whole weekend -- can I attend just one day?

Consistent attendance creates a more stable atmosphere for the whole group and helps everyone's learning and practice. Therefore we ask that only people who can attend the full weekend register.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There is on-street pay parking, though availability cannot be guaranteed. For those coming by public transport, please see the venue's information here: http://www.salisburycentre.org/site/findus/

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Please bring a vegetarian dish to share for lunch, both Saturday and Sunday. Or you can purchase lunch at a nearby establishment. (Breakfast and supper are on your own).

You may want to bring a notebook and pen, though these are not required.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please visit us at www.dhammafriends.net or write us at friendsofEBT (at) gmail.com.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, you do not. We'll have your name and that's all we need.
