 MAY 16th – 21st 2024

Awakening loving presence

In the still pool of retreat silence, we will engage in meditative practices together in order to open to the possibility of seeing ourselves and others more clearly with wisdom and compassion. Infusing our body, heart and mind with awareness, we will explore together aspontaneous, wise and open-hearted relationship with the moment-to-moment changing flow of life’s experience.

Awareness practice can also reveal layers of physical and emotional tension and pain. We may see our tendency to get caught in distracting storylines and beliefs that disconnects us from the fullness of our experience. Therefore, as we open to the truth of the moment, we learn to cultivate a capacity forcompassionately holding our suffering and transforming it into a deep sense of well-being. Only by turningwithin and deeply sensing and feeling can we know the true heart’s release that is possible for all of us.

Within the beauty of the surrounding nature, we will deepen into mindful awareness and awaken our hearts together through alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation. There will also be work meditations, movement practices and guided meditations, along with dharma talks and individual and group discussions– all to steady us, to sustain us and to enliven our hearts. Held in noble silence, there will also be open periods to find your individual rhythm in the retreat.

Sharda and Ásta invite both new and experienced meditators to participate in this deep immersion into awakening True Being.

All are welcome.
