Being human, we experience suffering and a sense of separation - from ourselves, from each other. Yet we glimpse a deeper possibility – to embody the loving awareness that is our true nature. This weekend offers an opportunity to explore an unfolding of our natural wisdom and compassion.
To help us discover this, silence will be maintained throughout the retreat except during question/answer periods and meetings with the teachers.
In silence we are freed from much of the daily barrage of stimuli that draws our attention outward. Learning to be aware of our experience from a place of quiet and deep listening allows us to see more clearly and, as insight deepens, compassion and wisdom can arise.
The retreat is designed for beginners and experienced practitioners alike and will include meditation instruction, dharma talks, and meetings with teachers.
