Settling with What Is

All too often in our daily lives we are gripped by a stressful momentum – feeling a sense of lack and incompleteness, we strain towards some imagined future circumstance which we hope will provide relief from the stress we feel. However, the essence of practice is to see and know, as purely as we can, our direct experience in the moment, finding resolution right within what IS, rather than trying to push past our current circumstances. On this online retreat we emphasise a settling into being present with what IS, so that the deeper layers of being become apparent, and the need to strive for something “other” is allayed.

This online retreat is suitable for all levels of experience.
