One of the Sangha members, Mike Maldonado, recently completed a one week retreat at the Insight Meditation Society Retreat Center in Massachusetts.  It is customary for a person who has completed a significant retreat to describe his experience in order for him to consolidate what he learned from the retreat and to inform and inspire others who may wish to go to a retreat, perhaps at the Insight Meditation Society, which is a premier facility.  Mike described the daily routine and talked of what he had learned fro the experience.

Next week’s talk will begin to explore the Paramis, the qualities of mental functions that are to be perfected on the path to complete awakening.
