Awakening Presence

with Emily Horn and Vincent Horn

June 9 - 16, 2019

On this week-long Awakening Presence Meditation Retreat*, led by Emily Horn and Vincent Horn, you’ll have the rare opportunity to dedicate yourself to uninterrupted practice in a community of peers.  Over the course of the retreat we’ll work on incorporating all aspects of our being, including the body, heart, & mind, into the fold of awakened presence. This full-spectrum presence allows us to more fully respond to the needs of the moment, whatever they may be.

During this retreat formal instructions & teachings will cover the Embodiment, Heartfulness, & Mindfulness styles of practice. The bulk of the retreat will be held in silence, punctuated by periods of teaching, social practice, and private teacher meetings.

*This retreat meets the prerequisite requirement for the Mindfulness Teacher Certification program offered by The Awareness Training Institute and Greater Good Science Center via Sounds True.
