19 – Jhanas and Emptiness
This retreat explores training in the meditative absorptions and howthey support deepening insights into emptiness. Instructions for meditative absorptions (jhanas) are taught from the lineage of Ayya Khema. Teachings and practices in maturing insight into emptiness are taught from influences in the Thai Forest tradition, with complementary perspectives from the suttas and the Mahayaya teachings. Short periods of Metta (lovingkindness) practice and occasional Qi Gong practice will be offered. To support deepening practice, participants will check in with a teacher every three days.
Der Kurs richtet sich an geübte Meditierende, die über gute Grundlagen der englischen Sprache verfügen.
