Questions That Heal and Free You:
A Training in Body-Centered Inquiry
Einstein said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
In order to climb out of any rut, resolve any problem or sense your path from a new perspective, you have to shift your awareness. This retreat helps this awakening through the exploration of three core practice:
- Insight (Vipassana) Meditation teaches you to pause and recognize what is present, allowing you to see with increasing clarity into the nature of things.
- Focusing is a mind-body tool that trains the mind to be intimately present to the “felt sense” and to investigate what arises from the field of direct sensation—all of which can result in access to wisdom and compassion.
- Inquiry directs your attention to new possibilities and helps you get out of the box of the linear, rational mind.
Combined, these techniques generate a unique, in-depth experience of awakened heart and mind. Through talks, guided experiences and discussion you'll develop skills that can connect you with a sense of aliveness, creativity and new possibilities.
