Phakyab Rinpoche teachings will be on the theory and practice of Buddhist meditation focusing on the nine stages that lead to the perfection of meditative concentration (shamatha). This meditation is necessary for healing the body and mind, for progress on the path to enlightenment, and for the practice of the trantras.

Rinpoche will be returning to Asheville in 2018 to begin a multi-year formal teaching of Shamatha Meditation as he has been doing at his retreat center in France. This Day-long retreat at OM Sanctuary will provide insight into the teachings.

Please bring:

Your own cushion, or mat, some chairs will be made available.
Your own water and lunch, some snacks and drinks will be made available at a fee.

During the break, OM Sanctuary offers participant’s access to two meditation rooms, a garden with waterfall, and 42 woodland acres (placed under a conservation easement) with a trail.
