Do you find yourself overwhelmed with difficult emotions at times? Do the challenges of the world create fear and worry? Afflictive emotions don’t have to be an impediment, they can be of great use on your spiritual journey. It is possible to use experiences of depression, anxiety, or trauma as a vehicle for awakening from the conditioned patterns of mind. These times of Covid are a perfect opportunity to deepen our practice together and grow spiritually.
In this retreat you will learn tools for investigating and disidentifying from mindstates and emotions. You will also learn about strengthening your centered presence in each circumstance. This silent retreat will include mindfulness, self inquiry, neuro-psychological approaches, somatic tools, sitting and walking.
Partial attendance is not offered on this retreat. Additionally, please consider attending this retreat only if your current life circumstances allow you to engage in an important modern renunciation practice of staying offline and off phone/text during the entire course of the retreat (some exceptions related to pressing family situations may be granted.)
