The 6 day residential retreat will provide the opportunity to deepen into presence, to experience being free from the agitations of the thinking mind.
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 & morning and afternoon gentle yoga sessions.
