‘Home’ speaks to us of rest, stability, peace and relaxation of effort. We instinctively seek for this and yet we may sometimes lack the wisdom to know what best serves this homing-instinct. In this silent retreat, the emphasis will be on developing a relaxed continuity of awareness. As the qualities of mindfulness and concentration naturally deepen, we start to bring wisdom to bear on the movements of mind that keep rendering us homeless. As we see this process more clearly we can start to rest and be truly at home.
There will be some periods of open practice during the day. Previous meditation retreat experience will be helpful for this retreat, but is not required.
