Integrating Life and Practice Life Retreat

  • Buddhist Geeks (online) (map)

This retreat is offered through Buddhist Geeks.  

Is meditation something you do while sitting quietly with your eyes closed, or it something that happens in every moment of your day and in every context of your life? In this 5-week intensive Life Retreat we’ll be focusing on the process of integrating meditative practice into our daily lives so that there is no separation between life and practice. Part of this process will include developing and maintaining a regular, daily meditation practice. The other part involves bringing the momentum of that practice into new areas, so that mindful awareness permeates your life.

Emily Horn and Vincent Horn's teaching approach draws on the methods and practices of concentration, investigation (noting), meditative inquiry, choiceless awareness, and heart-based meditation. As you work with Emily and Vincent one-on-one you’ll go through a discovery process together, finding out which techniques best support your unfolding process.

Topics of group exploration will include: Identification, Awakening, Compassion, Relationships, and Perspectives. This retreat is limited to two groups of 8 people.
