Welcome to the Shamatha Retreat

The Sanskrit word Shamatha means "peace of mind". Through the practice of Shamatha meditation we try to familiarize our mind with a state of mental calm, so that eventually our mind becomes more used to resting in this state.

“Samatha helps the mind become more honest with itself and with others, more realistic, and to have more of a sense of discipline, of spaciousness with others.”
Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche
