MORE ABOUT THE RETREAT TOPIC

TOUCHING THE REALITY OF INTERBEING: OFFERING THE GIFT OF UNDERSTANDING & NON-FEAR

Deep change and the transformation of suffering, in ourselves and in the world, are made possible by our inner stability, freedom, and understanding. These capacities are a precious resource that needs nourishment, cultivation, and protection. 

To nourish the possibility of transformation, we must learn to be truly present with ourselves and each other, just as we are.  Then, with a clear and kind embrace, the door of understanding can be opened. When we touch Life deeply, we discover that we are part of it; that our suffering and joy are interwoven with all beings.  We touch our not-separate-self nature. The experience of Interbeing can give rise to great understanding and compassion, allowing us to let go of differences and make strides on the path of healing and reconciliation.

In this retreat, we will nourish our understanding and non-fear through mindfulness in all retreat activities, breathing, sitting, walking, eating, singing, deep relaxation and joyful togetherness.
