A Residential Insight Meditation Retreat
The Heart of Awarenesswith
Sharda RogellTuesday September 19 (evening) to
Sunday September 24 (noon), 2017
Wood Acres Retreat Centre, Moose Jaw
This retreat is an opportunity to practise a way of being that embraces the fullness and aliveness of the present moment. Supported by mindfulness and the depth of silence, inwardly and outwardly, we will explore together a spontaneous, wise and open-hearted relationship with the moment-to-moment changing flow of life's experience. By paying attention in this way, we come to understand how to free ourselves from deeply held patterns and awaken to our essential goodness as well as other beautiful qualities of our heart and mind.
We will enter into a traditional retreat form with alternate periods of sitting and walking with daily instructions, dharma talks and discussions both in large and small groups.
This retreat is suitable for new and experienced students alike.
