The Path of Simply Being: A Meditation Retreat

Thomas Roberts

November 15–17, 2013

Tuition $175 + 2 nights

Beginning the path of meditation is an ideal opportunity to embrace the wisdom of everyday experience with great patience, openness, and compassion. In this dynamic and practical retreat, we will explore how meditation practice embraces all areas of our lives with depth and wisdom. Drawing from the Buddhist insight traditions, we will learn the essential qualities of taking our meditation practice far beyond the cushion, allowing us to remain fearless amidst the day-to-day flow of our lives, inviting our hearts and minds to expand and radiate with compassion and intelligence, and ultimately opening to our true nature. No previous meditation experience is necessary.
