The Threefold Training

“On coming across the Teaching of the Buddha, it is most important for everyone to cultivate the virtues of moral conduct (sÄ«la), concentration (samÄ dhi), and wisdom (paÃ±Ã±Ä ). One should undoubtedly possess these three virtues.” Mahasi Sayadaw

What benefits can I really expect to get out of my practice, and what are the best ways of getting them?

This daylong workshop will address these issues through examination of the Threefold Training, how the trainings differ in their focuses and outcomes, and how they complement and support each other on the path to liberation. Specific, simple and easy-to-do techniques will be offered for each training.

If you have already started your practice, but sometimes wonder what the hell you’re doing. Or if you’ve ever wondered why anyone would want to sit around “staring at their navel”, this would be a great place for you to get some answers.

This workshop is appropriate for any level of meditator (or non-meditator).

George Haas started down his path with a period of light-weight spiritual seeking (and heavy-duty drug and alcohol use). In 1978, he began a serious exploration of the 11th step in the 12-Step Tradition, working primarily with concentration to reduce the anxiety of living sober. In an effort to make sense of, and live with, the mounting AIDS deaths of the 1980s, Mr. Haas began walking the Red Road and reading Buddhist texts. Moving to Los Angeles from Manhattan in 1992, Mr. Haas began sitting vipassana at Ordinary Dharma, and reading extensively. In 1998, he began study with his current teacher, Shinzen Young, and Vipassana Support International. Mr. Haas is a Senior Facilitator at VSI and teaches in an irreverent style. He has been teaching meditation in Los Angeles since 2000.
