Registration for this retreat is full.
This retreat, held within the context of silence, will focus on the embodiment of insight that reveals a blessed sacredness within all life. Through training our attention, wise discernment and investigation, the Amata Dharma – undying Dharma – is intuitively known as the core matrix of pure consciousness within all that emerges and dissolves. Such knowing begins to transform our world, personally and collectively, enabling and strengthening an inner sense of freedom and confidence.
Together we will explore these themes supported by guided meditations, Dharma talks, some chanting, and qigong. This program is appropriate for both beginners and experienced practitioners. Everyone is welcome.
