Can someone enlighten me. With gratitude, Mary Dumka, Canmore, Alberta, Canada ..read more

Hello Venerables, I hope you had a blissful rains retreat, a pleasant abiding here and now. Venerables, would you be so kind as to share what lessons or insights you gained from this year's rains retreat? I also joined in on this year's retreat by meditating for more hours a day at home and I hope to continue this commitment even outside of Vassa season. So Venerables, I would appreciate it if you could share some insights and tips from personal experience and otherwise on how to conduct a successful individual retreat.
