Everywhere we look we are being shown reality. The truths of Buddhism are hidden in the objects around us and woven into our experience of being human. This retreat is about the ‘stuff’ of life, of humanness, of the world in us and around us.

Navigating the mystery of human existence we need fundamental Dharma teachings to guide us . We’ll use the twin tools of awareness and kindness to find our way out of the claustrophobic maze of self-referential views that limit us and into the clear light of day.

Our time together will be spent mostly in silence, listening to the dharma, meditating and reflecting. Poetry, movies, music and art will help illuminate the themes of compassion and emptiness.
