Event Dates: Friday, September 1, 2017 – Monday, September 4, 2017

The Anapanasati Sutta is one of the most detailed meditation instructions in the Pali Canon, and one of the simplest and most effective ways of exploring the central teaching of the Satipatthanas, which the Buddha described as the direct path to realization. On this retreat, Dhammarati, Nagabodhi, and Satyada will share their exploration of the Anapanasati sutta through meditation and study, and drawing on Sangharakshita’s teachings on mindfulness.

The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.

* Retreat participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.
