Opening the Heart To The Great Perfection

What would it feel like to be spontaneously open, loving, generous, and fearless? This retreat will offer simple practices for uncovering these qualities in ourselves. Arousing these innate qualities enhances our capacity to be in relationship and    brings a sense of ease and well being into our daily lives.  At the same time, these  practices prepare the mind for spiritual awakening.  With the support of beautiful surroundings and profound teachings, we can enjoy a peaceful weekend with good companions.

Prior meditation experience is NOT required.  While these practices come from Buddhism, they are essentially secular and can be employed by anyone, regardless of spiritual tradition.
