Exploring Awareness: A Retreat for Experienced Practitioners

During this retreat, we will explore the nature of awareness, or consciousness, which is the heart of sentient life. Awareness is always with us, revealing the phenomena of our experience, yet we may not have learned how to use it as a focus in meditation. As we deepen our connection to and understanding of this mysterious capacity for knowing, it becomes a powerful pathway to inner freedom and liberation. The retreat will include meditation instructions, talks, and interactive exercises on awareness as well as group and individual practice meetings with the teachers.
