Insight Meditation Retreat Finding the way home to natural awareness by Carol Wilson and Bart van Melik
On this retreat, we will explore the heart of the Buddha’s teaching: suffering and its causes and freedom and its causes. With the help and cultivation of our natural and relaxed awareness we can become intimate with what it is like to be human.
We will train our ability to bear witness to our personal and social pains and will immerse ourselves in timeless teachings to incline our heart-minds towards appreciating the joy of living. By taking refuge in the heart of kind awareness we will slow down so we can really listen to the truths of the present moment and find peace in our own awakened heart.
This retreat is open to everyone. It will consist of an honoring of noble silence, including periods of silent sitting and walking practice.
