This 3 session retreat will focus on helping us to develop a deeper experience of mindfulness and concentration in meditation. Through improving our meditation technique we will find that our meditations produce more powerful results.
The purpose of meditation is to concentrate our mind, then we are able to develop our own inner power to control our mind. Without control of our mind or thoughts we are at the mercy of painful feelings. We don’t ever choose to have painful thoughts or feelings, yet they come. We do not choose to stay with our painful thoughts, yet they remain. We can see from our own experience, we need mastery over our mind.
Join us for this three-session mini retreat and develop your meditation practice further. Joining our Thursday meditation practice classes, which are held weekly, will help you prepare for the retreat. Attendance in the Thursday classes is not necessary. The retreat will be available for 7 days after the original broadcast.
For people with a special interest in learning to meditate, we have developed a special meditation program. This retreat is part of the special meditation program that we have at KMC Houston. The program is designed to help people improve and enjoy meditation practice. As part of this program we are offering four unique online urban meditation retreats. The retreats are approximately every six weeks (March 27, May 8, June 26, and July 31).
The retreats coincide with the conclusion of each of the four unique series of meditation classes that we hold on Thursday nights. You can drop in for any Thursday Meditation Class. These classes are structured as a set of brief series of topics. Attending the whole series will let you understand an aspect of meditation. The subjects include: Introduction to Buddhist Meditation (Feb 18 – March 25), Foundations of a Strong Meditation Practice (April 1 – May 6), Meditation and Mindfulness (May 13 – June 17), & How to Practice Buddhist Meditation (June 24 – July 27). Check our online calendar for more information about these classes. There is no attendance requirement. You do not need to attend the classes in order.
You can join the classes and retreats as you like. The structure was prepared to allow people to enjoy meditation and to improve their practice, while still allowing people to join at any time. The class series and retreats will be repeated again in the fall. This means everyone who has the wish can attend all 24 classes and develop a strong understanding of meditation and have the benefit of guided meditation.
