The breath is a restful meditation topic. But as you explore its potential, you find that it offers more. It can provide you with tools for understanding and overcoming the mind's tendency to create unnecessary stress and suffering for itself. In this retreat, based on his new book, With Each & Every Breath, Thanissaro Bhikkhu offers guidance on how to work proactively with the breath in a way that helps you to reap its deeper benefits in both body and mind. 

Retreat Begins July 1, 2013
