ONLINE RETREAT THROUGH SPIRIT ROCK: This at-home retreat is now offered online only, on a sliding scale basis from $280-$1,900. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.
PLEASE NOTE: This retreat will be modified for an at-home schedule and experience.
The paradox of awareness is very profound and yet very simple. It can’t be described because it has no objective qualities and no limitation. Sometimes it comes naturally to the surface when we are fully in the present moment and no longer lost in thoughts or mental projections. Pure consciousness is neither high nor low, neither pleasant nor unpleasant, neither good nor bad.
Join us for this retreat where we will learn how to pay attention to this quality of awareness through formal and informal meditation. Once we know how to pay attention, it can be experienced in an instant – in all circumstances. When we reside in that liberated mind, we find the very thing we have been seeking all along.
The retreat includes silent sitting and walking periods with instructions and practice meetings with teachers, as well as daily dharma talks. This retreat is for both experienced as well as new students.
Schedule: May 20 – 27, 2020 at Spirit Rock Meditation Center. For more details visit: https://calendar.spiritrock.org/events/the-magic-of-awareness/
