Being the basic feature of our program, Tranquility and Insight Chan meditation course is the starting point of the cultivation of mind. The course is held three times in one year, taking place over one weekend, consisting of two daily lectures accompnied by practice periods. This meditation course is led by our teacher, Chan master Žarko Andričević. It aims to explain what is Chan meditation, why is the culture of mental cultivation so important and how to do it.
In a detailed manner, the topics include correct meditation posture, approaches to breathing, yoga exercises , self-massage, prominent Chan methods for settling the mind, how to understand experiences in meditation, what is the general theory and degrees in Chan meditation and finally, how to apply its principles in everyday life.
It is intended for beginners and all those who are already practicing meditation but feel that they are not thoroughly introduced to its philosophy and practice.
