The Mysterious Way of the Heart: Where Wisdom and Compassion Meet

This retreat focuses on the embodiment of wisdom and compassion. Through the cultivation of samadhi (a gathering of our heart, mind and body energies), we establish a healing foundation for insight into our mistaken identification with patterns of self. As structures of the self are gently released from grasping and aversion, our heart knows the emptiness and peace of its original nature. Authentic, compassionate response and intuitive understanding arise, and the non-dual nature of emptiness and appearance is recognized.
