Event description

Description

We often associate meditation with the search for a sense of inner peace, a refuge from the hectic pace of daily life. In this retreat, we will explore how rest and renewal become the ideal condition to reflect on our challenges, see them with fresh eyes, and bring an open heart to difficult places. As we connect with the natural spaciousness of being, we can awaken our inspiration to meet life with openness and compassion.

At this retreat, Marcy Vaughn will teach contemplative practices based in the Tibetan Bön tradition. Through simple, direct, and powerful guided meditations, we will explore both movement and stillness of body; sound and silence of voice; and contemplative reflection and spaciousness of mind. As limiting patterns loosen and release, wisdom and compassion awaken.

Join us for an exploration of the path that begins with what challenges us and leads us to the spontaneous expression of creativity available in any moment.
