The Way Out is In is remembering to pause, open and allow ourselves to get in touch with what’s going on internally when life feels overwhelming, chaotic, or meaningless. Through the 2 days of practice, you will have the container to look deeply into the challenges you are facing and examine the nature of what is real and what is self-grasping.
During this retreat we will work to settle the mind and compose the body with mindfulness and energy, giving rise to the unification of the heart mind. With the wisdom eye one can examine individual and collective suffering and see clearly into the nature of how things really are. Practices and techniques will be offered to help retreatants be with anxiety, stress and suffering internally and to transform it externally. Insights that arise from this subtle, cool, quiet place can then be put into further practice and applied into daily life with confidence and a deep inner knowing.
This retreat will follow a schedule of sitting, walking, mindful movement, self-massage, short chants, and Dharma talks by Trina. Noble Silence will be observed.
Due to limited resources, there will be potluck style lunch for two days so please bring something to share each day. A light dinner will be served. Please have breakfast before arrival. Retreat begins at 9am each day.
We are looking for volunteers to help set up meal time and clean up after meals. If you would like to support your fellow practitioners on this retreat through volunteering or would like to contribute dana for a meal offering, we would graciously accept your generosity and support.
