The retreat will focus on the four aspects of (Bavana) Cultivation.

  1. The development of Calm Abiding – Healing and forgiveness in a space that releases the complexity of the past and the anxiety of the future.
  2. The development of Insight – Seeing into things as they are, cultivating the kind of listening that acknowledges the body, the mind, and ultimately the heart.Hopefully bring it all into balance.
  3. Cultivating  a sense of freedom – Recognizing in the small moments a space that acknowledges freedom. Many little moments that give one insight that everything is complete just as it is — lots of little moments of Nirvana.
  4. Non-disturbing Awareness – The cultivation and the stabilizing truth of awareness as a complete truth: Stringing together lots of little moments that give one a sense of freedom and possibility.

This is simply a method – ultimately defining the world as a place to cultivate spaciousness and an open heart, allowing the fear to recede into the background so that we can attend to the wonders of this world.
