There might be more interest in this retreat at our Mahayana sister site:Dharma Wheel http://www.dharmawheel.net/
It’s only meditation when there are two minds:
Knowing-noting mind and observing mind.
If there is only one mind, ‘I’ is always there.
The object is not the dhamma,
The dhamma is the mind
That is being aware.
