Based upon the Buddhist teachings of mindfulness and loving kindness, this silent meditation retreat will explore our connection to ourselves and to the living earth through embodiment. Bringing in influences from various movement traditions and practice outdoors in the natural world, we will connect deeply with our physical, energetic, and emotional bodies. Through this connection we will touch the deeper truths about life and gain the stability of heart to move through this world with greater wisdom and compassion.
Insight meditation practice will be supported by daily vipassana and lovingkindness meditation instructions, including walking meditation outdoors in a spectacular natural setting.
In addition to individual practice discussions with the teachers, there will be an evening talk on Buddhist practice. To cultivate the meditation process, complete silence is maintained at all times throughout the retreat except during teacher interviews and group discussions. The retreat is suitable for those new to meditation and also seasoned practitioners. All are welcome.
