This retreat is for those of us who have embraced the impossibility of commanding life to unfold on our own terms. There’s a point in the process of spiritual maturation when we experience a deeply felt realization that life will always be beyond the reach of the grasping mind with its desperate need for control. We’re then presented with a choice: continue struggling for all that we’re worth…. or….. surrender into the forever unknowable. The core of this retreat will be the practice of sitting and walking meditation in silence. There will be meditation instruction, dharma talks, group interviews with the teacher, and some guided interpersonal exercises. Our exploration of this rich and challenging topic will enable us to return home with a new perspective on our most deeply conditioned habits of mind and a light, joyful appreciation for the lives we’ve been given.
