Awareness, Pure and Simple: Insight Meditation Weekend

From the perspective of the Buddha's teachings, there are basically two ways that we as human beings can live our lives. We can be either mindful of the present moment and its contents, or not. The consequences are diametrically opposed. Being mindful of the present moment supports happiness in our lives. Not being mindful leads to suffering. During this silent weekend retreat, suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, we will explore various techniques and approaches that train the heart and mind to be present in a way that is both relaxed and alert.
