Meditation System: The S.N.Goenka tradition.

Meditation System: This is a ten day retreat in which meditators begin by undertaking the Five Precepts of moral conduct as the basis for their practice. The technique begins by focusing on the natural breath at the nostril. Once sufficient concentration is established, they proceed to the technique of vipassana. That is, they explore their mental and physical nature by moving attention systematically throughout the body, dispassionately observing the physical sensations that occur.

Intensive silent retreats are open to the general public. The usual course format is ten days. There is no charge for the teaching. Donations are accepted from participants only to cover room, board and other operating expenses.
