“What happens when you stop trying to change yourself, to get somewhere besides where you are, and instead become aware of how it is – how you are – this moment?
What does awareness itself feel like, and what does it have to teach us about what we are that is free of the ego-self?
Explore your self, what you seem to be. How real your “self” feels. How do your ideas and stories of the self differ from the awareness that actually experiences the moment – that feels, notices, discovers?
How is it possible to orient to thought such that it ceases to enslave us?
What is the difference between spontaneous feeling and mind-caused emotion? If mind- caused suffering ceases, do we still feel?
These are the kinds of things we will explore together at the retreat. There will be times of teaching, times of meditative silence, periods of sharing and questions. We may do a little writing.”
