The Power of a Tender Heart: Awakening with Presence, Love and Insight
with Lisa Ernst
June 24 - 28, 2020
We live in a time when divisiveness and intolerance seem to rule the day. More than ever, we need to find a way to live from our hearts – for ourselves and for the world. Fortunately, even a moment of kindness and compassion can begin to open the door to the healing power of loving presence. During this retreat we will practice opening to the limitless space of the awakened heart and become intimate with the tenderness and love that reside there. This tenderness is a conduit to compassion, interconnection and freedom.
This silent retreat is suitable for newer as well as experienced meditators. It will include sitting and walking meditation, daily instructions, dharma talks and private meetings with the teacher. Jeff Samuels will be the teaching assistant at this retreat.
