Insight meditation offers us a way towards freedom from habits of confusion, clinging and resistance, the drivers of human suffering. As drivenness diminishes, we come home to who we truly are and can be open and intimately present in the unfolding of life. The warm quality of presence is love; our deepening practice reveals the boundlessness of an awakened heart. This retreat will explore within our own experience how insight and wisdom free us to love wholeheartedly, and how love liberates us from the painful delusion that we are isolated and separate.
This retreat is recommended for people with a foundation of meditation practice, and a previous insight retreat.
There will be optional Feldenkrais (Awareness Through Movement) sessions offered by Janet Maxwell.
ARRIVAL TIME: 3:30-5:30 pm, Wednesday, July 18. The retreat will conclude by lunch on Sunday, July 22. Everyone is welcome to stay for lunch.
