The universal human experience seems to be a search for connection and belonging. However, much of the time we find ourselves feeling isolated and alone, trapped in a conditioned reality that robs us of direct experience of the wisdom, love and compassion that is our authentic nature. We are not allowed to know that a life of love and acceptance is found by learning to direct attention to the intelligence that animates us instead of to the voices of egocentric karmic conditioning/self-hate.
We belong to Life. We are love. We are the compassionate acceptance we wish to receive. How do we practice that? How does karmic conditioning keep us isolated from authenticity, our bodies, and our lives?
This year-long retreat centers on moving from isolation and separation to the sense of belonging to Life. We will look at the importance of the community that supports our practice, and we will be supported by our community in keeping commitments in this journey to compassionate self-acceptance. We will develop the spirit of inquiry and a love of learning through projects of our choosing. We will find out for ourselves what it is to be lived by Life instead of controlled by ego.
