The Earth as Our Teacher: Gateways to the Heart

An Insight Meditation Retreat
Teacher: Susie Harrington
Meditating outside, resting in the sacred container of contemplative silence and the natural world, we will explore the inner beauty of our own hearts. The qualities of loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity were emphasized by the Buddha as beautiful states of heart and mind to be cultivated in meditation practice. Supported by the nearby Sierra mountains and wildness surrounding the Great Space Center, this Insight Meditation retreat will emphasize relaxation of the body, opening to nature, and spaciousness of mind, as gateways to the qualities of the heart. Our exploration will include sitting and walking practice - primarily outside, dharma talks, meetings with the teacher, and individual time in nature.

This retreat is suitable for those new to practice and those with experience. This is a low cost camping retreat, with indoor facilities for inclement weather. Indoor sleeping accommodations are also available (additional cost) . See registration for details.
