Description

Unconditional presence is the capacity to fully meet, allow, and open to whatever we are experiencing, no matter how challenging it may be. This is what allows our experience to unfold in the direction of greater freedom, truth, and wisdom.

In this weeklong retreat, we cultivate unconditional presence with three kinds of practice: meditation rooted in mindfulness and awareness, psychospiritual inquiry, and embodiment work. These three practices together create a powerful synergy that helps us settle into our deeper nature, inhabit our body, flow with our felt experience, and become more attuned and present with ourselves and others.

The first two days of this program are largely devoted to meditation, which cultivates a deeper sense of grounding, openness, and presence that informs all of our other work during the week. Previous meditation experience is not necessary—just a willingness to engage fully in this practice.

For 26 years, John Welwood has offered this program, which evolves in unforeseen directions based on his current work. This retreat provides an opportunity to slow down, go beyond conceptual mind, meet your experience freshly, and inhabit yourself in surprising new ways. It is appropriate for those in the helping professions as well as for everyone interested in cultivating embodied presence.
