An Online Insight Meditation Half-Day Retreat
EMBRACING THE HEART OF AWARENESSwith
Sunday, May 30 (1:30pm – 5:30pm)
Awareness has a heart and it’s a human heart – that feels, senses and is engaged with life in the world. Through awareness, the world comes into being. Are we present for this opportunity to engage with our experience as it displays itself in each moment in a wonderous and mysterious way? Sometimes when we open in this way, we might sense in ourselves a holding back – withdrawing, hiding or dulling which hinders our full engagement. Yet, when this is sensed from a heartful awareness, it’s possible to enter into the experience in a whole new way. In this half day retreat, we will engage and explore the experience of waking up into the wonderment of this present moment and what it offers to us.
This retreat will follow a more open format than the usual silent retreat. Sharda will be guiding you into an openness and immediacy of heartful awareness, and inviting you to engage with her and the group field through sharing what is true for you as we explore this territory of the heart of awareness. There will be periods of meditation and time to walk outside. And this retreat will be more interactive than others she has offered so that we can practise together and support each other to bring the act of relational engagement more alive, for ourselves and for our community and the world.
Everyone is welcome to participate.
