Opening to Wisdom and Love: Insight Meditation Retreat

The Buddha observed how easy it is to forget the capacity of the heart for wisdom and love. A meditation retreat can help us remember how essential these qualities are for our very existence.

At first, we may be hesitant to look inside, out of concern for what we may find. But the more deeply we investigate, with a relaxed yet focused attention, the easier it is to know, moment by moment, the reasons we have to love. In letting go of fear and other unsatisfactory, habitual patterns, we discover a heart full of confidence and a mind full of peace.
