An Integrated Awakening: Insight Meditation Retreat

This silent retreat, suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, focuses on the embodiment of wisdom and compassion. Through the cultivation of samadhi (the unification of heart, mind and body), we establish a stable foundation for exploring the patterns of self. As suffering is gently released, the heart recognizes the spaciousness and peace of its original nature. Intuitive understanding and authentic response arise naturally when the non-dual reality of life is recognized.
