Going Deeper: An Integrative Approach to Compassionate Awareness 

A Retreat with Dave Smith and Deborah Eden Tull 

During this retreat, we will learn to develop a greater sense of understanding and care for ourselves through the revolutionary practice of the Dharma. Integrating Mindfulness and Compassion practices we will develop a balanced approach to liberation and insight.

Each day will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks, relational mindfulness, and meetings with the teachers.

Mindfulness unites the stillness of concentration with the immediacy of moment-to-moment experience, allowing intuitive wisdom to arise. Compassion meditation practices call forth the beauty and depth of the human heart. Relational mindfulness helps us to embody the interconnection that is our natural state. Awareness of these qualities strengthens and brings them into fruition. This process guides our thoughts, attitudes and behaviors into the direction of awakening to our full potential.

The retreat is suitable for new and experienced practitioners.
