Embracing Our Lives with Loving Presence
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:
- How to recognize and release the fears, judgments, and limiting beliefs that prevent you from living and loving fully
- Approaches for beginning or enriching your meditation practice
- Guided exercises to open your heart, connect to your inner wisdom, and feel relaxed
- New skills for health professionals to support and empower their clients and patients.
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.
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.
Awaken your potential for living with confidence, trust, and connection to what matters.
