Relaxed Openness: Embodying Presence

This insight meditation retreat will guide us towards strengthening qualities of mind that include receptivity, gentle continuity of energy, heartfulness and radiant clarity. Rather than emphasizing technique, we will learn to cultivate wise attitudes of practice that foster a steadfast trust in ourselves and in the naturally-emerging wisdom of our hearts. Suitable for beginners and experienced meditators, the course will also include an optional daily session of mindful yoga.
