It is possible to live with a relaxed and natural awareness in everything you do. The Buddha stated that sati—mindfulness or awareness is a complete path to liberation. Mindful awareness cultivates the ability to be present with all experience with clarity, insight, and freedom. It is the foundation for wisdom, compassion, and awakening.
In this silent meditation retreat we explore the innate quality of awareness: what it is, how to recognize it, and how to cultivate and abide within it. We investigate how continuity of mindfulness practice supports a depth and stability of awareness, and inquire into what interferes with fully stabilizing in awareness both in meditation and in ordinary activity. As mindfulness grows, we see how this capacity for awareness is available in every moment. The retreat includes periods of sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks, inquiry, and discussion.
