With spring in full bloom, May 1 marks a moment where cultures around the world celebrate relationships. In Buddhism, a key relationship worth exploring is our capacity to know and our capacity to care. Silent retreat allows us to touch, taste, feel, smell, and see this luminous dance between embodied knowing and embodied care. At this time of increasing global crisis, the relationship between letting go and trusting a heart that knows can resource us in profound and unexpected ways. On this retreat, we will enter into Noble Silence, invoking our intention to increase our intimacy with this primordial relationship. Our intention is to support you as you tenderly meet each moment with care, shedding layers of holding and unwise beliefs. We will weave Dharma teachings with stillness, movement, ritual, sound, and song. We invite you to bring an object to our shared altar representing your intention for the retreat.

March Insight Meditation 1-Month Retreat Application - 2024

Awareness, or consciousness, is the very heart of sentient life. Yet in our practice we may not have learned how to meditate directly on this aspect of our experience. In this retreat we will explore the nature of awareness in three stages. First, we will develop concentration through mindfulness of breathing. Then we'll introduce lovingkindness meditation, inviting the beautiful qualities of the heart. Finally, we'll focus on specific meditative techniques that allow us to rest in the pure nature of awareness itself.
