This summer, I would like to attend a shamatha meditation retreat (as the title probably suggests), but thus far it has been exceedingly difficult to find one through my searches on the Internet. So, I was wondering if anybody who is more knows any practice centers or links to find centers that are hosting such retreats between June and early August in the United States or Canada.
I do not want my house to be walled in on sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any.- Gandhi
With persistence aroused for the highest goal's attainment, with mind unsmeared, not lazy in action, firm in effort, with steadfastness & strength arisen, wander alone like a rhinoceros.
Not neglecting seclusion, absorption, constantly living the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, comprehending the danger in states of becoming, wander alone like a rhinoceros.- Snp. 1.3
