Retreat Dharma Talks

The Heart of Awareness

This retreat is an opportunity to practice a way of being that embraces the fullness and aliveness of the present moment. As we open to the truth of our experience, we can cultivate a capacity for meeting and transforming suffering into a sense of deep well-being. By paying attention in this way, we come to understand how to free ourselves from deeply held patterns and awaken to our essential goodness as well as other beautiful qualities of our heart and mind.
