How does training our minds enable us to relax and fully inhabit our lives? By learning to direct our attention through mindfulness practice, we begin to realize that underneath our anxiety and emotional volatility is an awareness that simply knows present experience as it arises. When we lose track of our basic nature, which is innately sane and healthy, we experience confusion and cause needless pain to ourselves and others. During this retreat, we will explore how to strengthen our connection with our basic nature through meditation, discussion, and the celebration of community. All are welcome, including those who have no previous experience with meditation.
This retreat is offered in conjunction with Applied Mindfulness Training and is part of the Come Together series, which helps participants use meditation practice to gain trust in our ability to deliver benefit on all levels, from the personal to the global, in every moment.
