[KCC intends to offer the choice of residential or Zoom livestream for all retreats. We continue to work on the technology to be able to do this. If we are unable to provide Zoom from our SCOL retreat facility, we will livestream Zoom only.]
Shamatha, or resting meditation, is the basis of all our meditation practices. Through this practice we develop mindfulness and discover awareness, providing us with indispensable tools to more skillfully weather the inevitable stormy passages of life and to progress along the path from confusion to clarity.
Though the days will be full, there will ample breaks and opportunities to stretch after every 30 minutes of sitting. Most of the time will be spent reflecting and meditating, but there will also be daily opportunities for questions and discussion. Limited opportunities will be provided to speak with the instructors as well.
