Day-Long At-Home Retreat with DaeJa Napier
Sunday, 7:00 am – 4:00pm PDT
September 5, 2021 – “Equanimity: Calming the Heart”
At Home: Guardians of the Heart: Insight Meditation and the Sublime Abodes
October 2 – 9, 2021
“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” Buddha
Through the practice of Insight Meditation (vipassana), we begin to see deeply into the miracle of our own human mind and body process, As a result, our whole life begins to change in ways that guide our responses to ourselves and others with increasing insight and love.
The four sublime states (brahma-viharas) are natural expressions of an awakening heart. They are loving-kindness (metta), compassion (karuna), appreciative-joy (mudita) and equanimity (upekkha). These mind and heart liberating teachings, attitudes and practices function as guardians and protectors – while supporting the greater good in each moment.
As antidotes to fear (anxiety), aversion (judgment and ill-will) and clinging (attachment) – they bring increasing balance, ease, trust and fluidity to the way we respond to the “ten thousand joys and ten thousand sorrows” that come and go throughout this precious existence.
