Omega Retreat 2015

Meditation for Beginners

Omega – Rhinebeck, New York
August 22, 2015 – August 23, 2015

A previous Omega retreat with Bhante Wimala.

Meditation for Beginners provides a survey of meditation techniques to start the beginner and refresh the experienced meditator.

Spiritual traditions throughout the ages have recommended meditation as a core practice and a path toward peace of mind. Modern medicine is now finding that meditation techniques can be applied to alleviate pain, improve health, increase vitality, and buffer day-to-day encounters with stress.

In Meditation for Beginners, appropriate for both nonprofessionals and helping professionals, we sample a variety of meditation traditions, philosophies, techniques, and practices from yogic, Buddhist, and shamanic traditions.

For thousands of years, Buddhist masters have practiced and evaluated nearly every meditation technique. It is from this legacy that Bhante Wimala draws his knowledge and guides us to develop a personalized meditation program that can be used at home to find peace and health in daily life. He also shares with us his personal experiences through slide shows, talks, and videos.
