Upasaka Upali periodically teaches meditation retreats, which are the best way to deepen your practice. Retreats involve an extended period of Noble Silence, meaning that there’s very little talking, activity, or distraction. During these retreats, you will be able to maximize the amount of time each day that you spend meditating.
