naturally awake

Remembering our true nature is peace and joy

 

Waking up to an abiding sense of well-being is not a matter of acquiring special skills, becoming religious, accumulating material wealth or getting smarter. Peace and joy are never apart from us. It’s just that life’s conditioning tends to obscure our access.

relaxed and informal

No prior meditation or retreat experience is required. By the end of the retreat everyone will have been offered:

 

  • an understandable framework for the process of “waking up”

  • a context for the kinds of practices and teachings associated with deep well-being

  • embodied methods for accessing the already awakened self

  • tips for cleaning up the fragments of trauma and confusion that tend to obstruct us
