Awakening: Insight Meditation Retreat for Experienced Practitioners

This silent retreat will focus on freeing awareness from the bonds of our personal narrative and mental projections. Teacher guidance will help retreatants strengthen a fearless presence that holds the entirety of life within the magnanimous heart. Together, we will explore the spiritual path as a journey through our self-constructed identity into realms of profound stillness and contentment.
