This is an online event.
From the organizer:
Today’s world has revealed the truth of impermanence and uncertainty in ways that deeply touch our daily lives. As the truth of the unreliability of life unfolds, we can choose to embrace tremendous suffering or welcome the stillness within us that holds the power of awakening. We are sacred beings with a deep capacity to see through the veil of separation into our interconnectedness and interdependence with one another and the earth. This new and unfamiliar world is calling for us to arouse the full capacity of our spiritual potential, intuitive power, and ethical conduct.
During this two-day online retreat, we will map our own unique journey through guided and silent meditation, walking, and optional embodiment practices that settle the mind, heart, and body to open us to spacious awareness. There will be daily dharma talks, group reflection and discussion, as well as time for questions and answers. By practicing within the confines of our homes, we will experience an understanding of how to develop continuity of mindfulness in daily life. Our primary focus will be on cultivating awareness through recognition, acknowledgement and investigation of feeling tone and sensation. Through the practices of Lovingkindness, Compassion, and Joy we will deepen our capacity to nurture and care for both the joys and the sorrows of life.
The weekend will include guided and silent meditation practice, walking meditation, optional embodiment practice, dharma talks, group reflection and discussion. There will be time for questions and answers. The retreat is appropriate for all levels of practice.
This event is hosted by White Heron Sangha.
