A Month of Meditation: Shamatha-Vipashyana Dathün

With John Rockwell and Matilda Perks
August 19 – September 17, 2023
Dorje Denma Ling, Nova Scotia

A month of group meditation practice is a wonderful way to train and open our whole being. The practice of shamatha-vipashyana (mindfulness-awareness) meditation is at the heart of the training. Silence or functional talking, eating meals in the shrine room using the Zen monastic practice of oryoki, talks by the teachers, and regular meetings with meditation instructors are also central to this retreat.

Confusion is just a gust of wind
which swirls over our wakefulness.
