Big Sky Mind ~ meditations on pure awareness

Silent Guided Meditation Retreat in Evergreen

July 13 2024 | 9am-4pm

On this retreat we will learn how to unveil and meditate on the clarity, luminosity, and natural purity of our own mind, coming to rest in a deeply peaceful state of awareness. By discovering that there is far more space inside us than outside, we see our usual problems in perspective – a skill which can then permeate every aspect of our lives.
