Awakening : Insight Meditation Retreat for Experienced Students

This silent retreat will focus on Awakening. When we free awareness from the bonds of our personal narrative and mental projections, we are no longer governed by our fears or compulsions. Teacher guidance will help retreatants to strengthen a fearless presence that holds all life in love and without contraction.
