Embracing Our Lives with Loving Presence
August 25-27, 2017
Friday-Sunday, 2 nights
Plus 2 nights all-inclusive accommodations priced separately below.
We spend many moments of our lives in a trance, feeling separate from others, deficient, and afraid of failure. Yet we intuit a deeper potential—to embody the loving awareness that is our deepest nature.
Join Tara Brach, internationally known Buddhist teacher and best-selling author of Radical Acceptance, to explore how you can connect with your innate wisdom and compassion, even in the face of conflict and challenge.
During this weekend retreat, you will learn:
Tara masterfully draws from best practices in Western psychology, principles of Buddhist psychology, and a range of meditative and contemplative traditions to inspire beginning meditators and offer a space for deeper practice to more experienced meditators. The weekend includes periods of silence, as well as interpersonal sharing in a safe setting that supports your inward exploration.
You will return home connected to a deeper, more loving sense of yourself and the world, with practices to sustain and nourish you in moving forward in wholeness.
Tara Brach is a psychologist, meditation teacher, and author of the best-selling books Radical Acceptance and True Refuge. She is founder and senior teacher of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, DC, and teaches Buddhist meditation at centers in the United States and Europe.
Tara’s podcasted talks and meditations are downloaded nearly a million times each month. Her teachings blend Western psychology, Buddhist psychology, Eastern meditation practices, and mindful attention to the inner life with a full, compassionate engagement with the world.
She fosters efforts to bring mindfulness to issues of equity, inclusivity, diversity, peace, and environmental sustainability, and is actively involved in initiatives in the DC area to offer mindfulness in prisons and school.
After college, Tara lived for 10 years in an ashram, went on to obtain her doctorate in clinical psychology, and then to complete a 5-year Buddhist teacher training program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center. In her free time, she enjoys taking long hikes along the Potomac River with her dog.
Enjoy a nurturing weekend to reconnect to the deepest source of love and awareness.
If you are new to meditation, immerse yourself in a gentle experience that will introduce you intellectually and experientially to the practice.
