Arrival after 3pm on May 25th
I have, over years, come to understand that living a conscious life is not an accidental process. It is a material and spiritual art form that requires a heart willing to open, embracing compassionate acceptance and action toward both self and other. We consciously cultivate an awakened ego function able to guide our thoughts, feelings, and emotions toward our deepest intention of actualizing our human potential toward awakening into the clarity and compassion of the wisdom mind. By identifying our innate Pure Awareness and the objects that capture our attention, we learn to find freedom in a moment, more and more able to choose our responses to self and other that are conducive to well being personally and in relationship.
You will receive direct pointing out instructions for natural mind realization as well as clear and complete instruction on ten progressive stages of meditation; which injunctions when practiced lead to deep calm and life affirming insight. Gentle embodiment and metta practices are included in our daily program.
As your Guide, I look forward to meeting you, sharing in Buddha Dharma, and offering personal interviews. Regardless of your prior experience, rest in beginners mind and a willingness to open into your deep caring and life concerns in the context of this beautiful rustic retreat setting.
