In this retreat we will explore how natural, effortless, open-hearted, awake awareness unfolds into non-dual universal compassion becoming a guiding light for how to live our lives. The everyday expression of our awakened heart is the continual activity of love, generosity, gratitude, joy, and compassion radiating in all directions for the benefit of all beings everywhere. It is seeing, feeling, and making a conscious heart connection with the primordial purity that is the essence of every living thing. This practice of engaged, open-hearted, awake awareness has the power to spread goodness to all we meet and everyone we consciously bring to mind. We activate an innate capacity to heal and bless ourselves and others and this becomes the basis for deepening and expanding our own realization. We will spend time sharing this loving awareness with each other and all beings.
This is a special opportunity to practice within the supportive group retreat environment with a gifted instructor.
This program is the companion retreat for the course, Awakening Non-Dual Compassion For All Beings, but is also open to those experienced in the non-dual practice of Awake Awareness.
Please bring a water bottle and bag lunch (optional). There will be an hour break for lunch. Tea and snacks will be provided.
While I have read and received direct path teachings before, the addition – or the clear pointing out of the heart element – deepened and made more vivid my experience. Incredible.Brandon, 5-Day Retreat Participant
Sharing the retreat with a group in this setting was so important and uplifting. Result – stronger understanding of awake awareness. Highly recommended. The best teachers with years of experience who actually care about your experience.Diane, 5-Day Retreat Participant
Thank you for such spacious, pointed teaching! The material, pacing and presentation (!!) continue to be first rate. The personal examples you give are always warmly humorous and helpful. Your passion for this practice mirrors your concern and care for us, your students and fellow practitioners. I watch my practice deepen and realization clarify while sensing the same maturation in my fellow class mates.Barry, Meditation Teacher and Awakening Course Participant
