Deepen your practice in beautiful Santa Barbara...
Join MHP's founding teacher Radhule Weininger for this intimate weekend retreat at the beautiful and serene Mount Calvary Monastery and Guest House. Time in retreat allows us to step out of the complexity of our life, to listen deeply to our body, heart, and mind. A retreat provides an opportunity and a caring container deepening our meditation practice. The mindfulness practice on retreats is often accompanied and complemented by training in loving-kindness meditation.
Most of the retreat is held in silence, with periods of sitting and walking meditation There are teaching talks, guided meditations, time for questions and answers and meetings with a teacher. Retreatants are encouraged to practice mindfulness in a continuous way, staying with their own present experience as it unfolds, moment to moment. In this silent and mindful environment, awareness sharpens, the body quiets, the mind clears, and space opens for insight and understanding to develop. By cultivating the power of awareness, clarity, and kindness, we discover our path to inner freedom and a peaceful heart deeper, for the benefit or our relationship to ourselves, our community and our wider world.
