Finding the Way Home to Natural Awareness

On this retreat, we will explore the heart of the Buddha’s teaching: suffering and its causes, and freedom and its causes. With the help and cultivation of our natural and relaxed awareness, we can become intimate with what it is like to be human.

We will train our ability to bear witness to our personal and social pains, and will immerse ourselves in timeless teachings to incline our hearts and minds toward appreciating the joy of living.

By taking refuge in a loving and kind awareness, we can slow down to listen to the truths of the present moment and find peace in our own awakened hearts.

This course is open to everyone. We will honor and abide in noble silence throughout each day. The retreat format includes alternate periods of silent sitting and walking meditation practice, meetings with the teachers and opportunities for questions.
