Bramaviharas Retreat: July 17-23, 2020,  at Cloud Mountain Retreat Center in Castle Rock, Washington, USA. Taught by Stephen. Register at www.cloudmountain.org. All accommodations are single or double rooms (no triples). The Brahma Viharas are an ancient meditation practicing contacting and developing the heart qualities of our deeper nature.  In this retreat we will practice all four meditations – loving kindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity.  We will learn the meditations for each heart quality and spend a day on each Brahma Vihara.  These are cultivated to both heal our hurt and wounded life experiences as well as orient, and relax, our consciousness to receiving the naturally arising qualities of an enlightened heart. These meditations practices will be presented from the perspective of a nondual awake awareness.  The qualities are naturally arising in awake awareness.  This is our natural, unconditioned, reality.  Presenting the practices from this perspective supports us in seeing their inherent value and function outside our normal “Self” perspective. This retreat is suitable for new and experienced meditators.

Luminous Mind 7-day Samatha Retreat: tentatively, in Denmark. Taught by Tina.

Luminous Mind 14-day Awakening Retreat: tentatively, in Croatia. Taught by Tina.
