Retreat Title: Simply Being *Now online only and open to bookings*
Led by Tejananda
Sadly, due to new lockdown restrictions this retreat will have to be online. Only the residential retreat here is cancelled - the online retreat is NOT FULL and now open to bookings please see here.
At any moment we can recognise, directly and viscerally, that we are alive and awake. With a settled and embodied awareness, this could open into an intuitive glimpse of what we truly are, beyond concepts. This might be evoked as a spacious yet embodied presence, a timeless awareness-emptiness, or love, compassion and pure energy.
We’ll explore this by way of a somatic approach to just sitting meditation together with experiential inquiries – discovering our own direct experience as aliveness, intimacy, simplicity and clarity. These subtle yet accessible qualities of our ordinary mind and being can act as gateways to the five wisdoms or ‘undivided awarenesses’ (jnanas), which are the essence of the five Buddhas. The mandala of the five Buddhas and their wisdoms offers a very practical map of our immediate experience, pointing to what has simply been here all along, unnoticed.
This retreat is suitable for people who have been meditating for at least 3 years
