Taming the Wild Horse: Riding the Energy of Emotions with Acharya Dale Asrael

Acharya Dale Asrael

May 21–25, 2009

Tuition $150 + 4 nights

Anger, jealousy, and other emotions can either trap us in struggle or open us to the direct experience of awakening. This retreat will offer techniques to expose the core belief structures that perpetuate emotional confusion, and meditation practices that lead to the development of insight. These practices will reveal how even the most painful emotions can be the basis for developing compassion for ourselves and others and give us glimpses of the pure energy that is the essence of emotion.

Prerequisite: Prior meditation retreat experience
