Retreat Title: Opening to Life
Led by Advayasiddhi
How do we meet experience as it is here and now? How do we open our hearts and minds so we can engage with curiosity, kindness and wisdom in the ever changing show we call life?
On this meditation retreat we will explore all this from different aspects: What it means to open to life, to our present moment experience, to ourselves, to the world… - and most importantly to enlightenment, reality as it is.
Starting out with metta and body-based practices, we will then take our meditation deeper whilst at the same time exploring the opportunities for insight and freedom, right in the middle of our moment to moment experience. We will look at how ease and happiness becomes possible when we do not pick and choose, but simply train ourselves to meet all experiences with curiosity, kindness and wisdom. We will be drawing on various Buddhist teachings to help us see through all our expectations and stories and find the freedom and love available in simply being present.
