Information om evenemang

Shamata is the practice of Attention Development aimed at achieving focused attention on an object without agitation or dullness.

No matter your level of meditation, you can benefit from training your attention. With this skill we can:
– uproot negative habits,
– develop Bodhicitta,
– experience insights into the nature of reality and radically
– alter our relationship to the rest of the world  (B. Alan Wallace)

These four days include teachings, group discussion, 24min meditation sessions with time for reflection, Q&A and discussion.

Teachings will be based on the B.Alan Wallace book THE ATTENTION REVOLUTION.

About the teacher

Ven. Mary Reavey: Born in Dundee, Scotland, Ven Mary was a staff nurse when she first encountered FPMT’s mother monastery at Kopan in Nepal in 1978. It was her love of adventure and trekking that led her to this place, but Ven. Mary ended up attending a month-long course taught by Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, who emphasized the importance of meditation and taking complete responsibility for your own actions and their effects.

In 2001/02, Ven. Mary took ordination as a nun with Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Receiving her Bikshuni ordination in 2015, Ven. Mary has also taught in prisons and at hospitals and hospices.

Until 2012, Venerable taught meditation and Buddhist philosophy at Buddhist centres and hospitals in the UK. Over the years, Ven. Mary has undertaken and led many meditation retreats. She completed a one-year solitary retreat in 2014 and completes a three-month personal retreat each year.

This event is organised in collaboration with Lhagsam Meditation center in Zurich.
