Opening to Experience: How and When (Retreat at Spirit Rock)
2017-02-05 Opening to Experience: How and When (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 61:03
James Baraz
One of the most profound gifts of retreat practice is learning to open to our experience. We develop confidence, courage, compassion and insight as we are willing to work with all the challenging and beautiful places the mind can take us to. And it's also good to know when it's more skillful to not open to those places if we need to have a stronger container to hold them. Qualities that support this opening such as forgiveness, patience, sense of humor, and self-compassion are explored.
