Meditative absorption is a deeply peaceful state of body and mind, free of restlessness and dullness, accompanied by a wonderful sense of physical and mental wellbeing. In this meditation retreat, you will explore an effortless approach to meditation, setting aside the usual struggles to calm your mind as well as any sense of failure or guilt associated with the process. Instead, with a caring and attentive attitude, you will be guided in cultivating the foundational qualities for experiencing such deep absorptions in your daily meditation.

Some of the benefits are to:
- Deepen physical relaxation
- Develop a spacious and wakeful mind
- Create the conditions for experiencing pleasure during meditation
- Work creatively with hindrances to meditation.

This retreat consists of several meditation sessions daily, each combining explanation and guided meditations. There will also be time for self-practice, Q&A, and discussion. Please feel free to bring along a yoga mat and a blanket to experiment with meditating in the supine position.

Wai Cheong graduated with an M.Sc in Chemistry and worked in research before completing the 7-year Master's program in Advanced Buddhist Studies at Istituto Lama Tsong Khapa in 2004. He followed this with a four month solitary retreat. He has been teaching meditation and Buddhism since 1996, with a special interest in making available the benefits of meditation to a wider audience. From 2006-2015.
