Awakening Your Felt-Sense of Loving Presence Daylong

Jonathan Foust St. Luke's Episcopal

Jonathan Foust

12/7/2019 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM  at  St. Luke's Episcopal (6030 Grosvenor Lane, Bethesda, MD, 20814) (Map It)

What are you? Some traditions say it’s two essential elements: Wisdom and Love.

Wisdom is your capacity to see clearly.

Love is the heart space that can hold it all -- your suffering as well as your joy and the mystery of your unfolding life.

This daylong is dedicated to awakening your capacity for love.

Through short talks, guided experiences and inquiry you'll develop skills that can help you connect with a tangible and embodied sense of loving presence. 

You'll learn:

  • your unique pathways to access Loving Presence
  • skills in awakening and cultivating somatic awareness
  • meditation techniques for calming and accessing kindness, compassion and joy.
  • movement flows to help shift your brainwave states to more open and intuitive levels of awareness.

This is not a classical meditation retreat where you are in silence the whole time and alternating between sitting and walking practices.  

This retreat is highly experiential and interactive. In addition to internally-focused practices, through inquiry with a partner and small groups, you'll meet new people in a safe and supportive environment.

Parking and Public Transportation

IMCW retreats and workshops offer instruction in Buddhist meditation and talks on the awakening of our natural insight, love and wisdom. While the meditation practices derive from the Buddhist tradition, they are universal in orientation and address spiritual themes of concern to all contemplative traditions.

A workshop is not primarily silent (talking may be allowed during breaks and lunch) and may be focused on a special topic, such as applying meditation to relationships, emotional healing or physical well-being. Workshops may include a variety of formats, including different reflections and exercises and the sharing of experiences.
