Retreat Dharma Talks at Spirit Rock Meditation Center

The Radiant Awareness of Being

The trajectory of dharma is the realization of the radiant awareness of heart and the embodiment of that perspective. This retreat will explore the nature of awareness and the qualities of a free heart as it manifests within the world.

The archetype of Kuan Yin, 'the one who regards the sounds of the world at ease' and who extends merciful compassion while rooted in the realization of emptiness, will inform the teachings which will include mindfulness, devotional, and qigong practices. Each day will include meditation instructions, chanting, dharma talks and meetings with the teachers.

The heart already Radiant gets confused by what moves through it. If it shouldn't be this way, it wouldn't be this way. Unfolding into the 4 Noble Truths, realizing the unshakable heart tasting the unconditioned.
