Attitude and Awareness, Insight and Integration

On this silent retreat, suitable for all, we will cultivate awareness in the stillness of sitting, as well as in all our general activities. This balance of simple yet continuous attention to the direct experience of the mind and body is a powerful foundation for the gradual development of meditative confidence and stability of mind, and for deep insights to arise. These transform our relationship to all life experiences. With awareness in the midst of our daily activities, we can recognize an enduring sense of well-being in every situation.
