Awake in the Wild: Insight and Peace through Meditation in Nature
April 10, 2020 @ 9:30 am - April 12, 2020 @ 5:00 pm EDT
On this silent mindfulness retreat in the serenity of nature, we will explore potent practices that open the heart and mind to insight, intimacy, and interconnection with all life. Through various Buddhist awareness and heart meditation practices, we will discover how mindfulness can help us see through the illusion of separateness and learn from nature’s wisdom teachings of transience, interdependence, and letting go. We will also explore how nature evokes a profound peace and genuine transformation in our practice and in our lives, and brings forth the beautiful qualities of joy, wonder, and love for all life.
This retreat will weave together periods of guided and walking meditation, discussion, Q&A, mindful movement, and both group and individual practice check-ins.
