2012-10-27 Focus and Freedom: Introduction to the Jhanas 2:31:31
A workshop/retreat on the meditative absorptions (jhanas) and their relationship to mindfulness and insight practice. There will be periods of instructions coupled with sitting and walking meditation along with ample time for questions and answers. Although one day is insufficient to learn the jhanas, the workshop will allow you to learn about them and to consider whether you want to pursue this study further. For people who want to read more on Jhana practice, please go to Leigh’s web site at http://leighb.com

2012-10-28 Understanding Is the First Step: The Buddha's Teachings on Right View 2:52:12
Right View is the first practice given in the Noble Eightfold Path. During this workshop we will examine the Buddha's teachings on both Right View and Wrong View in order to get a better understanding of exactly what he meant by this very important topic. Although the day will primarily be of a scholastic nature, there will be periods of meditation as well as ample time for questions, answers and discussion.
