Saturday/Sunday Meditation Retreats with Gabriel and Marcy: The Healing Power of Contemplation

Through meditation we connect with our essential nature: unbounded spaciousness, infinite awareness, and genuine warmth of positive, healing qualities. In this workshop, through the support of guided meditations, you can directly experience this nature and begin to harness the great healing power of non-conceptual awareness. Opportunity will be given to reflect upon your life, to bring to mind situations in which you may find disquieting or uncomfortable. As you bring naked observation to places you habitually move away from or try to figure out conceptually and instead connect more deeply with spacious awareness, the healing warmth of love, compassion, joy, and equanimity naturally arise.
