Cultivating stable awareness of all experience is training in wisdom that reveals liberating insights into the nature of reality. We see that everything that appears, including ourselves, is simply the natural display of impersonal conditions giving rise to their lawful effect. When the mind is supported by skillful view and is unclouded by confusion, greed or negativity, reality is accurately recognized. This is seeing our world through the eyes of the dhamma, and is the foundation for well-being and liberation.

This silent retreat will offer complementary teachings and instructions integrated from various Buddhist meditative traditions. Suitable for beginning as well as experienced students, the course will include scheduled meditations, chanting, movement, talks about the teachings and group check-ins with a teacher. It will also feature two self-scheduled periods, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. During these, participants can establish their own rhythm of sitting, walking and other forms of meditation. This helps deepen continuity of mindfulness and confidence in our own practice, and strengthens our ability to take the awareness and wisdom developed on retreat out into our daily lives.

Franz Moeckl will offer optional daily qigong.
