For all levels.
Albert Einstein said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” In order to climb out of any rut, resolve any problem, or sense your path from a new perspective, you have to shift your awareness. This retreat is designed to immerse you in practices that can generate such a shift.
Vipassana (insight meditation) teaches you to pause and recognize what is present, allowing you to see with increasing clarity into the nature of things. Focusing is a tool that trains the mind to be intimately present to the “felt sense” and to investigate what arises from the field of direct sensation—all of which can result in access to wisdom and compassion.
Combined, these two techniques generate a unique in-depth experience of awakened heart and mind.
Through these full days of practice, talks, presentations, one-on-one exercises, and discussion, you find yourself moving into deep self-inquiry, developing skills to carry with you for the rest of your life.
