Meditation isn’t just saying we are okay with everything. Nor is it cutting off from the world, isolating ourselves in a bubble of inactivity and uncaring bliss. True meditation is a wake-up call to be embodied and present. It encourages us to engage fully with the brokenness of our world, and to include all the parts of our life in our caring attention. Yet we need to let go of needing a particular outcome. This is a way of living in our world with joy and engagement, neither checking out nor burning out.
During this weekend retreat, we will sit and walk together in silence, exploring a balanced energy, caring observation of our body-mind. There will be guided meditations as well as question-and-answer periods with the teacher.
To assure everyone has a safe and wholesome retreat, we ask each retreatant to honor The Five Precepts throughout the retreat. Read more about The Five Precepts here.
