5-Day “Commuter” Retreat (Non-Residential) to be held on the land!

In this retreat, we will train in three interrelated modes of practice. First, we will settle and stabilize our minds and bodies, becoming more concentrated through both sitting and moving forms of meditation, including Qigong. As we settle, we become better able to examine closely both our experiences of our bodies, thoughts, and emotions, and the general patterns of experience, both more personal and more universal.

With practice, we see more clearly—when we are reactive, when we suffer, when there is a thick sense of self—and we learn to be more with the impermanent flow of experience. And we can tune in to an increasingly unconfined and luminous awareness beyond reactivity. This luminous awareness is a source of freedom, wisdom, and compassion, both in retreat practice and daily life.

Completion of a class or retreat in mindfulness practice, and an ongoing mindfulness practice highly recommended.
