Seven-day study retreats (Douglas Park)
with Bhikkhu Anālayo
July 14 - 28, 2018
This course will undertake an in-depth study of mindfulness meditation based on a comparative study of the three extant versions of the Satipatthāna-sutta, where besides the well-known version in the Pali Canon, two parallels have been preserved in Chinese.
The course is meant for experienced practitioners of meditation only, who wish to deepen their understanding of the canonical source material. While based on the academic method of research, the emphasis throughout the course will be on what is of practical relevance to actual meditation practice. The course will combine study and discussion sessions in the mornings with meditation practice during the rest of the day.
Bhikkhu Anālayo is a German scholar-monk and the author of Satipatthāna: The Direct Path to Realization, Perspectives on Satipatthāna, and Excursions into the Thought-World of the Pali Discourses. He is a Core Faculty Member at Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, and a professor at the Numata Center for Buddhist Studies at the University of Hamburg.
