Upon arrival, meet with one of the monks who will introduce the day’s activities and explain his own personal experience with meditation.
With the assistance of the monk, learn the techniques of meditation. The course is based on the Buddha’s four foundations of mindfulness: mindfulness of body, feelings, mind and dhamma. After learning the basic principles of meditation then take some time to practice alongside the locals.
