This is an important opportunity to reflect on our mind-heart—to deepen our discipline of meditation, to see what causes suffering in our lives, and to learn what frees the mind from the conditioning habits that limit our potential for kindness, compassion, and understanding.
Those who have experienced it recognize the value of sustained practice as meaningful and valuable. Retreats reveal insights that deepen our understanding, broaden our resilience, and strengthen our resolve. The confidence and insight that comes through attending a retreat has special value in terms of the training aspects of meditation. We may realize a determination we didn’t know we had access to. We discover the courage to face our suffering and see our way through it with the kind of intimacy that heals.
Many of us my find it difficult to commit to a seven or ten day retreat. We may have responsibilities that limit our availability to take the time for retreat. The cost associated with longer retreats may be a consideration, as well as, the travel that is sometimes required. MOI Retreats provide a comfortable and safe environment for practice where practitioners can explore longer meditation sessions in preparation for traditional extended retreats. MOI Retreats are affordable and local and lead by well-practiced teachers. Those retreatants who have sat the full day during past MOI Retreats said the experience was “amazing and healing” and “transformational.” Don’t miss this unique local opportunity to cultivate the balance of effort and surrender that dissolves our illusion of separateness and brings deep insight and wisdom.
