Retreat Title: Simply Being
Led by led by Tejananda
‘Simply being’ points to the aliveness and awakeness that we can recognise at any moment. It’s an openness to full presence, our full being – in body, senses and awareness. It points to being what we really are, beyond conceptual fabrication. In recognising and opening to the steady and spacious aspects of experience here and now, we may glimpse a timeless awareness-emptiness that is inseparable from loving, compassionate energy.
We’ll explore all this through sitting meditation, experiential ‘lookings’ and by discovering our own direct experience as awareness, simplicity, intimacy and aliveness. These are gateways to the five ‘undivided knowings’ (jnanas), the essence of the dharmadhatu mandala of the five Buddhas. These offer a very practical ‘map’ of our immediate experience, pointing to what has been here all along, unnoticed – simply being.
