What is awakening? Awakening is the inspiration for many of us in our spiritual journey, but may be unclear about what awakening really is, how it happens, and what we can commonly encounter on the spiritual path. This weekend retreat will provide an overview of awakening as it is understood in Theravada Buddhism, as well as other traditions. Misconceptions will be clarified, and participants will have the opportunity to tune into their own aspiration to awaken. The retreat will include sitting and walking periods, time for journaling and reflection, teaching periods, and Q&A. Suitable for all levels.
