      Hello friends you are invited to subscribe to an infrequent newsletter that
      is dedicated to meditative absorption and Ecstatic Buddhism. This
      newsletter will basically post a timely calendar of retreats that are
      dedicated to the cultivation of meditative absorption in any religious
      context, thus samadhi, jhana, fana, gnosis, ecstasy and meditative
      absorption are all terms that have been used for this experience.

      Maha-satipatthana Sutta (DN 22.21)
      "And what is meditative absorption (sama-samadhi)? There is the case where a
      contemplative; who is withdrawn from sensory phenomena, and withdrawn from
      unwholesome mental states; enters upon and abides in the first meditative
      absorption state (jhana), which is accompanied by bliss (piiti) and joy
      (sukha) originating from withdrawal...² (through fourth jhana).
