SJBA invites you :
Retreat with Ajahn Wimoak :
“The Development of Knowing and Seeing in Samatha and Vipassana Meditation.”
Knowing and Seeing in meditation is of great importance for a practitioner to wake up himself for the light of wisdom. Ven. Vimokkha will teach those practitioners to really know the concept of right mindfulness and right concentration according to Mahasatipatthana and the Noble Eight-fold Path for the realization of the Four Noble Truths and the path to the emanacipation of mind.
