  • About This Event

    This special five day semi-silent meditation retreat will begin with us learning the deeply relaxing and profoundly illuminating meditations on the nature of the mind – or Mahamudra. These simple and inspiring meditations have been practiced for centuries, enabling anyone to experience the natural clarity and peace of their own mind. Through training in Mahamudra meditation we can discover our potential for genuine peace of mind and find inner freedom from anxiety, fear and other painful emotions.

    In the second part of this retreat, after our mind has settled through Mahamudra meditation, we will focus on the meditations on the wisdom of the true nature of reality. These meditations dissolve the illusion of the ego, a separate sense of self, which causes us to feel isolated, anxious, and disconnected from others. Through discovering our true nature we dissolve the barriers between self and other, increase our love, and discover a boundless source of peace from within.

    Each guided meditation session is broken up into several parts and includes basic settling meditation, teachings and instruction, and further guided meditation. To promote peace and stillness within, we will be observing silence every day until 12:30pm (lunchtime).
