On this daylong we will focus on developing the skills for deepening embodied concentrative and calming states as taught in the Thai Forest tradition. By interweaving wisdom and exploring the relationship between calm and insight, we aim at unifying the mind while developing strategies to release that which hinders us through energy work and chanting. This daylong is particularly suitable for practitioners who wish to deepen their Samatha (tranquil brightening) practice.

Day retreats offer a chance to practise meditation and mindfulness in a supportive environment. They include alternate periods of sitting and walking meditation, and the teacher provides guidance through meditation instruction, a Dharma (teaching) talk, and a question and answer session. Beginners are offered additional instruction and assistance. For experienced meditators the day is an opportunity to refresh and deepen practice. The retreats are normally held in silence.
