This is a silent retreat combining a mix of teaching and practice on Shamatha and The Four Close Applications of Mindfulness/Vipassana Meditation. It is preferable that people who attend, have some meditation or retreat experience, but it is not essential. The retreat will focus on the basic principles of training the mind in Shamatha meditation, to create a relaxed, peaceful and contemplative countenance as well as basic teachings on the Four Close Applications of Mindfulness/Vipassana. The evening sessions will focus on the heart practices of the Four Immeasureables, Loving Kindness, Compassion, Joy and Equinimity. The costs will include all meals for day participants and all meals and shared accommodation for residential participants.
The retreat is suitable for anyone who wants to gain greater clarity of mind, increase their mindfulness and insight into the true causes of our stress and tension in the mind and body. Whilst the teachings are derived from the Buddhist philosophy a commitment to Buddhism is not required.

Rinchen completed the 2 month silent Shamatha Retreat in Phuket in 2011 with Dr B Alan Wallace and has attended and completed many other retreats and courses over the years.
