Staying grounded in Awareness. Day retreat with Heike Griffin [online]

September 4 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

“Awareness is your refuge: Awareness of the changing of feelings, of attitudes, of moods, of material change and emotional change. Stay with that, because it’s a refuge that’s indestructible.” Luang Por Sumedho.
We will explore the Buddha’s teachings to feel into the indestructible refuge of awareness which helps us stay grounded even in difficult times and through the storms of life.

The day will include periods of reflection, guided and silent meditations as well as some walking meditation. There will also be an opportunity for questions and interactions with other participants.
