The Liberating Intimacy of Being Who You Are

2014-01-23 (3 days) Gaia House

2014-01-23 Opening Talk 61:45
  Leela Sarti
An exploration of how to truly land and relax into a retreat, and feel into the personal and universal truth of why we engage in the practice of Insight meditation.
2014-01-24 Identity and Being 52:50
  Leela Sarti
Who am I beyond concepts and ideas about myself? What does it mean to experience myself as a medium of consciousness? What is it that needs to wake up and what goes through transformation? This evening talk inquires into how embodied presence allows experience to arise in a more complete and whole way. As our capacity to be clear and sensitive evolves we become more malleable in our being, more real in our understanding and capable to respond rather than react to life.

  Leela Sarti
It is transforming to simply pause, sense and listen instead of immediately filling up the space. When we become sensitive and attuned to the neutral tone in life it can become an entry to the stillness of the ground of being. With the help of poetry and stories, unfabricated silence and the power of not knowing is invited into the practice space. An invitation to shift our weight, more profoundly than the mind can imagine, to the unfabricated, the unconditioned, the deathless.
