Overnight Retreat with Scott Tusa

IDEAL FOR: All levels including beginners

"Be kind to yourself as you proceed along this journey. This kindness, in itself, is a means of awakening the spark of love within you and helping others to discover that spark within themselves." -Tsoknyi Rinpoche

There are many ways to approach the practice of meditation. On the Buddhist path meditation is a tool to uncover the true peace of our own inner awakened nature. Rather than a “self-help” technique or a limited transactional method, Buddhist meditation aims to cultivate a relational awareness. One where the development of our own inner peace connects into responsibility and altruism towards others.

Through a combination of experiential learning and meditation, this weekend workshop will explore the intersections of core Buddhist principles and our everyday lives, where integrative meditation practices meet the world around us. We will focus on:

- Learning to connect with the root of meditative awareness

- Working with “overactive judgment” and distinguishing between reacting and responding

- Connecting meditative awareness into our relationships and the world around us

- Accessing a unified ground of presence in the body that can heal relational wounds and deepen our interpersonal relationships

- Learning how to connect the benefits of meditative awareness into compassionate action
