Natural Wisdom and Compassion

With Alexis Santos and Steve Armstrong

September 1 - 8, 2017

During this weeklong retreat, we will explore and cultivate the practice of awareness that leads to liberation and well-being. There will be an emphasis on understanding “how to practice”  as taught by Sayadaw U Tejaniya. When the mind is supported by skillful knowledge and is unclouded by confusion, greed or negativity, reality is accurately recognized. We see that everything that appears is the natural display of impersonal conditions giving rise to their lawful effect. In the ease of noticing our own experience, moment by moment, the natural wisdom and compassion of the mind can blossom.

In support of this relaxed, continuity of awareness, the retreat schedule will  include periods of self-directed practice. Retreatants will have an opportunity to follow their own rhythm of sitting and walking practice.  It is through this relaxed, yet steadying awareness, that we come to understand the way things are.

This course is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned meditators.
