settling the mind with shamatha meditation

We’ve just finished the last day of the 8 week shamatha retreat with Alan Wallace in Phuket, and what a gift. It’s amazing what arises from simple attention to the breath. Since I arrived here 3 weeks ago, I’ve had the good fortune to attend Alan’s teachings both morning and evening. The simplicity of sitting with a group of serious practitioners has profound affects. And Alan’s vibrant and wise teachings help steer the fickle mind to it’s resting place, right here in the present moment, free of fixation.

Wonderful.
