Retreat Type: 

Dhyana is a meditative state of effortless concentration, calm, pleasure, and joy. It’s traditionally regarded as an indispensable prerequisite for Awakening.  It’s also a source of despondency - if you don’t know how to get there! On this retreat, Bodhipaksa will guide us step-by-step guide into the experience of Dhyana, and show how it can be a basis for Insight.
