The Buddha taught that that key to peace, joy and happiness is release: a state of mind and heart not driven by a relentless insistence that life, in this moment, be other than as it is. This capacity for freedom is available every moment yet is often obscured by our agitated minds and wounded hearts. When we shift away from self-sourcing and turn towards any one of the many facets of awakening, and start divine sourcing we let go, and experience what is timeless, luminous and boundless. This day-long retreat will combine the steady focus and insight of Vipassana meditation, with the relational practice of inquiry to find our own access to awakening.
