Natural Mind is the already self-perfected state of our primordial nature. Natural mind has always been, and will always be, “perfect.” The only problem is that everyday consciousness is so clouded by emotions and thought that it isn’t typically recognized. In this advanced 7-day silent retreat we will systematically “deconstruct” consciousness through a series of prescribed ancient Tibetan meditation practices, with the goal of direct recognition of this unparalleled primordial state.

Arrival after 3pm on Aug 1st

Natural Mind is the already self-perfected state of our primordial nature. Natural mind has always been, and will always be, “perfect.” The only problem is that everyday consciousness is so clouded by emotions and thought that it isn’t typically recognized. In this advanced 7-day silent retreat we will systematically “deconstruct” consciousness through a series of prescribed ancient Tibetan meditation practices, with the goal of direct recognition of this unparalleled primordial state.

In maintaining integrity of the practice space one must be willing to lend themselves fully throughout each day to the prescribed meditation practices, while maintaining silence throughout, and abstaining from use of phones, computers, tablets, music players, etc. for the duration of the retreat.
