B: Intensive Cultivation/Meditation Retreat (7 days)

Only after becoming accustomed to the above daily disciplined schedule will participants be prepared for phase B, an intensive cultivation/meditation retreat. This retreat, lasting seven days and held in full silence, will take place in one of Fo Guang Shan’s meditation halls, and will be led by experienced monastic meditation teachers. This is valuable time to apply the Buddhist teachings learnt in the first two weeks to look deep within one’s own mind, a critical part of the process of Buddhist spiritual development.
