Connecting Mind and Heart 7-Day Residential Retreat
November 23, 2018 - November 30, 2018
|The Mind and the Heart are not separate. We’ll take these 7 days of silence to explore and put into practice various skillful means to access naturally relaxed, open hearts and clear quiet minds. Through these expansive states insights into how we become unnecessarily distressed and how we can find inner peace and ease naturally arise. These insights heal, uplift and ultimately free us.
This silent retreat will offer instructions to develop mindfulness, combined with training in loving-kindness and compassion, through a daily schedule of silent sitting, walking, dharma talks and practice meetings with teachers. This is an excellent opportunity for both those new to retreat practice as well as experienced practitioners. This retreat will be held in noble silence except for interviews and question and answer periods. For beginners, please note that noble silence does not exclude common sense communication in times of emergency or at times when communication is needed to clarify meditation or work period instructions. This will be part of the instructions.
