The Dharma offers us many ‘skillful means’ for encountering life directly--meditation, inquiry, ethical principles, the power of a loving heart. Contemplative writing cultivates them all. In this retreat, we’ll explore such writing as a practice of courage. Without courage, we fall back into the trance of conditioning. We fear contact and shrink from responsible action. Courage gives us the strength to face life as it is: raw, immediate, intimate, tender. This five-day retreat includes silent meditation, guided writing experiments, and dialogue practice, all held in a safe and kind community we will create together.
About the Venue
The retreat will be held at the Brahma Kumaris Centre for Spiritual Learning in Wilton, NSW, approximately 75 minutes’ drive from Sydney. Accommodation is in comfortable twin share rooms with en suites. Serene gardens and bushland surround the meditation centre.
