Even a glimpse of subtle impermanence allows us to let go of our perceived problems and limitations. This understanding frees us to fully embrace and enjoy every moment of our lives. Combining this with meditations on the peaceful clarity of our mind, and carrying our insights into our daily lives, we will soon come to experience real freedom and joy.
The perfect way to spend Thanksgiving weekend! On this practical and experiential retreat, we will explore the astounding beauty and power of these meditations to transform our life and bring real benefit to ourselves and others.
Everyone welcome, whatever your level of experience.
