“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.” – W. Whitman
Transformation of our hearts and minds has never been more vital. The very possibility for future humans to experience Truth, Beauty and Goodness is up in the air! And yet, most of us have significant challenges following through with our aspirations and continuing through the ups and downs that come with committed Dharma work.
This retreat will bring together Parts Work modality (i.e. IFS, Voice Dialogue) with Buddhist meditation practices to amplify understanding and dis-identify from ‘voices’ or ‘selves’ that hinder our unfolding. We will also practice tapping forces that are our allies in Awakening. Through this we develop choice with the different parts of us that arise on the path, finding space around and translucence within them.
Sessions will be a mix of silent and guided sitting meditation and group facilitations where participants directly explore parts of themselves such as those listed above.
This is for anyone with aspirations around liberation of the heart, bringing to light and integrating shadow elements, finding empathy for difficult to embrace parts of oneself, addressing obstacles to Dharma practice and deepening self-understanding. First time and experienced meditators are welcome and will find insight and nourishment.
This retreat begins at 5:00 pm Friday evening and ends on Sunday at around 1:00. Please plan on staying for the whole thing.
Currently we ask that all retreat participants be vaccinated for Covid. We also ask that guest take a rapid covid test on the day of arrival. More information will be sent closer to the retreat!
