Wisdom teachings:

Meditation and yoga can open us up to see the world with greater balance and equanimity by learning to break the cycle of our habitual tendency to struggle against what is happening to us and within us. In time we can start to live with greater ease and freedom by learning to befriend our difficulties rather than back away.

● Advice:​​ ​Whether​ ​you​ ​have​ ​attended​ ​100​ ​retreats​ ​or​ ​0,​ ​approach​ ​with​ ​an​ ​open​ ​mind​ ​and​ ​heart. Spend​ ​some​ ​time​ ​in​ ​reflection​ ​before​ ​your​ ​arrival​ ​to​ ​best​ ​understanding​ ​why​ ​you​ ​are​ ​taking​ ​this time​ ​for​ ​yourself.​ ​Also,​ ​understand​ ​that​ ​we​ ​must​ ​always​ ​start​ ​where​ ​we​ ​are.​ ​While​ ​it​ ​is important​ ​to​ ​get​ ​some​ ​practice​ ​(yoga/​ ​meditation)​ ​in​ ​before​ ​your​ ​arrival,​ ​the​ ​practice​ ​instruction offered​ ​will​ ​be​ ​suited​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​a​ ​deeper​ ​appreciation​ ​of​ ​your​ ​current​ ​practice​ ​and​ ​may​ ​create pathways​ ​to​ ​new​ ​ones.​ ​Enter​ ​retreat​ ​feeling​ ​prepared​ ​(less​ ​is​ ​more).

● Continuity:​​ ​Just​ ​as​ ​we​ ​prepare​ ​for​ ​retreat,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​also​ ​important​ ​to​ ​continue​ ​your​ ​practice​ ​when you​ ​get​ ​home.​ ​Notice​ ​if​ ​you​ ​cling​ ​to​ ​the​ ​experience​ ​and​ ​work​ ​to​ ​bring​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​experienced relaxation​ ​and​ ​clarity​ ​into​ ​your​ ​daily​ ​life.​ ​Feel​ ​free​ ​to​ ​review​ ​your​ ​retreat​ ​experience​ ​with​ ​me​ ​so that​ ​we​ ​can​ ​work​ ​together​ ​to​ ​investigate​ ​the​ ​path​ ​to​ ​continued​ ​spiritual​ ​growth.​ ​While​ ​you​ ​are still​ ​inspired,​ ​beginning​ ​thinking​ ​of​ ​your​ ​next​ ​retreat.
