Modern life is complex, often demanding and can be highly technical too. But as human beings gifted with the magical mystery of awareness, we have all we need to align with and relax into awakening, just as the Buddha did.
On this retreat we will explore the possibility of easing into natural simplicity and effortless enjoyment of life's journey. Drawing on the ancient wisdom of Mahamudra we will invite in resources, release obstacles, and relax into the flow of life more fully without the stress of trying to control our experience.
