One Day In Studio Retreat with Jharna

One Day In Studio Retreat on Mindfulness Meditation and Anapanasati Sutta study with Jharana Bajracharya Rashid

Join Jharna Bajracharya for a deeply enriching journey into your mind and breath for a one-day retreat at the boudha location of Pranamaya Yoga. This retreat will examine mindfulness as taught in the Theravada Buddhist tradition. We will examine the Anapanasati Sutta for theoretical study and take time to put the theory into practice with incremental seated meditation. The morning session will be held from 10am – 1pm followed by a lunch break and recommence for the afternoon session from 2pm – 4pm. Meditation cushions will be provided for this workshop but you are free to bring your own. You may wish to bring a notebook to take notes during the theory teachings. This retreat is suitable for beginners to more seasoned practitioners of meditation.

“Mindfulness can be defined as being aware. It is a spiritual faculty that holds great importance on the path of awakening. When we bring an object of attention to our mind and be with it, we can say that we are mindful toward it. We can choose various objects to practice mindfulness but we should attend to ‘right mindfulness’(Pali- samma- sati; Sanskrit – samyak smrti). The Buddhist practice of right-mindfulness is related directly with the truth of the present moment. That which facilitates us to be in the present moment is known to be a correct method for obtaining mindfulness.”

Jharana Bajracharya Rashid - Biography

Originally from Nepal, Jharana is a dedicated teacher and practitioner of mindfulness meditation. After many years in the entertainment business working as an actress she found herself yearning for more profound methods of contemplation and self-study.

Appealed by the idea of silence, in 1997 she attended her first Vipassana meditation retreat. This gave birth to her meditation practice which since, has been an ongoing process of unfolding insight. Though her foundation practice has primarily been the practice of Vipassana taught by various meditation masters in the Burmese lineage, study of Mahayana teachings as well as Upanishadic teachings have impacted her practice. She has received teachings and attended retreats from Aj. Sucitto which she regards as a blessing and who provided her with the courage to walk the path of self-awareness. The teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Gangaji, and Adyashanti have been a tremendous resource, aiding in the cultivation of her practice. In 2011 she completed an extensive 5-month retreat in the Amaravati and Chhitaviveka monasteries in England.

She continues to practice in solitude and in retreat formats, which only serves to inspire her to share the insights of this tradition with others. Jharana is also an inspired painter and potter and a second degree Rekhi healer. She holds a degree in Sociology.
