Weekthun: Practice and Being Human

With Adana Barbieri

A weekthün is a week-long group meditation practice that provides a precious opportunity to deepen your connection with the different stages and techniques of shamatha/vipashyana practice. The program's strong container is an excellent way to establish or re-establish an ongoing daily meditation practice that will permeate your life on and off the cushion.

Breakfast, lunch, and a light supper are provided daily.  Talks, discussion groups, Shambhala yoga, and interviews with the Director and Meditation Instructors are included in the program. Out-of-towners are welcome, and will be hosted in the homes of Phoenix Sangha members if requested.

Generosity policy applies. No one will be turned away because of lack of funds. Partial attendance is acceptable. Cost for partial attendance is 50.00 per day.

Please note: Space is limited, so please register as soon as possible in order to assure your spot in the program.
