We are in the midst of a global climate crisis that is pushing us to wake up. More than ever we need to have attention grounded in our bodies, take time to relax, renew, let go and open our hearts.
Body Awareness/All Pervasive Awareness
The Buddha taught awareness of body and breath as a path of enlightenment. Our body is our direct link to the Earth. Bringing attention to the body allows for relaxation, stillness, renewal and letting go. To discover the body is to discover awareness, and eventually, the awakened state. All pervasive Awareness is a direct approach to embodied non-dual consciousness pervading our body and the environment as a whole. This retreat will combine body awareness and All Pervasive Awareness practices to uncover an authentic experience of ourselves as individuals and our connection with all of life at the same time.

Teacher support: Suggested starting donation is $30 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. All donations go to support the teacher's monastic needs via Awakening Truth.
Just as monastics in the Buddha’s time were sustained by the offerings of the lay community, modern-day monastics depend on the kindness of others. When you make a contribution to support monastics (and the Dharma), you nurture your own virtuous aspiration and help create a field of blessings that supports others to do the same.
