“Love tells me I’m everything
Wisdom tells me I’m nothing
And between the two
My life flows.”
-Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
The spirit of this retreat will strengthen our ability to maintain a continuous quality of awareness not only in retreat, but also so that it can extend into our daily lives in a seamless way. We will be exploring the Four Foundations of Mindfulness with more emphasis on awareness of the qualities of mind. The teachings of Sayadaw U Tejaniya on Mindfulness of Mind will be integrated, and one of his books will be offered to each retreatant to read during the retreat as a support for practice. We will explore how we can more clearly uncover the wisdom in our minds by strengthening the loving kindness in our hearts. Equanimity practice will be offered as a way of integrating the love and wisdom aspects of our practice.
The retreat schedule will include periods of sitting meditation and stillness in the Dharma Hall, interspersed with walking/movement practice. The retreat will be held in Noble Silence, and will include complete meditation instructions, Dharma talks, guided loving kindness and equanimity meditations, Q&A, group and individual practice discussions, mindful work periods, eating and resting as opportunities to maintain continuous awareness. This retreat is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators.
