Natural Awareness Wisdom: Insight Meditation Retreat

When the mind is relaxed, aware and supported by skillful knowledge, wisdom arises naturally and we see our world through the eyes of the Dhamma. Seeing things "as they have come to be" is the foundation for well-being and liberation.

This silent retreat will emphasize developing a continuity of awareness that is supported by right attitude and right effort, gradually opening to awareness of mind, one of the four foundations of mindfulness taught by the Buddha. The open, receptive, appreciative qualities of metta and the caring, interested and responsive qualities of compassion arise naturally and spontaneously as we practice in this way.
