Awareness is the secret jewel innate in everyone. Awareness illuminates experience that supports clarity, understanding and insight. It is the foundation for wisdom, compassion and awakening.
In this silent meditation retreat we will explore this innate quality of awareness—what it is and how to cultivate and abide in that serene awake presence. We will investigate how mindfulness supports a depth of awareness through various meditation practices, and look at what obscures the clarity of awareness both in meditation and in life. As mindfulness grows we discover how this capacity for awareness is available in every moment.
We will also explore the fusion of love and awareness and how developing awareness allows a natural opening of the heart, which fosters a kind and compassionate awareness to ourselves, to others and to all experience.
Ideally participants will have already attended one silent mindfulness retreat prior to this retreat. The general daily retreat day will be from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. all 5 days.
All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
