Event Details

Dates: August 13 – August 15, 2019; 10:00am – 4:30pm
Sliding Scale: $225 – 600. Code AT2M19.

Like a multi-faceted jewel, awakening has many different expressions: joy, compassion, energy, and clear seeing. Through mindfulness, cultivating sublime states and resting in the natural perfection of awareness, we will cultivate practical and useful tools for spiritual liberation. This retreat will be oriented toward the task of realizing the freedom of our own direct experience, bringing forward our awakened condition in everyday life.

Our time together will include periods of guided and walking meditation, discussion, embodied movement, journaling, and Q&A.

Recommended for practitioners with previous Buddhist meditation experience.
