The retreat will provide you the opportunity to deepen into stillness and presence, freeing yourself from the agitations of the thinking mind. When we do experience presence and stillness, most of us are quickly pulled back into the world of the mind which gets caught up in past and future thoughts. Deepening into stillness allows us to examine and transform the habitual limited patterns of mind that create confusion, anxiety and suffering. The retreat will support inquiry into what it means to be awake, what takes us out of that state and how to remain more fundamentally present and alive in our daily lives and relationships.
The retreat program consists of sitting, walking & guided meditations, meditation instruction, group & individual meetings with teachers, open inquiry sessions, evening Dharma talks and morning and afternoon gentle yoga sessions.
