Searching for the elephant's tracks

Starts 23 Sep 2022

Footprints of an elephant in mud

An intensive meditation retreat looking further into the nature of mind

To desire something other than just this immediate present awareness, is just like having an elephant at home, but searching for its tracks elsewhere. (-Self-Liberation Through Seeing with Naked Awareness, Guru Padmasambhava, trans. John Myrdhin Reynolds.)

What to expect

40 minute meditation periods will be interspersed with leg stretches; daily sessions of walking meditation and semi-supine (back care). We will build up to an extended period of silence.
