Description

We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Adyashanti is unable to teach this retreat. He has chosen two teachers in his lineage to lead the retreat in his place: Mukti, Open Gate Sangha associate teacher and Adyashanti’s wife, along with Sharon Landrith, who received dharma transmission from Adyashanti more than a decade ago. For more details, please view this letter from Mukti.

Truth is that which lies beyond the grasp of the dreaming mind. It is not something that can be captured and stated as a fact. Truth is only discovered in the moment and cannot be carried over to the next moment, the next day, or the next year. Memory never contains truth; it only contains what is past, dead, and gone. Only that which is true and real has the power to liberate us from the mechanical and magnetic draw of the dream state.

Ultimately, the belief in things that are untrue is what imprisons us within the trance state of our daily lives. If we are to awaken from the mind’s hypnotic embrace and truly live the reality of non-separation, we need to break the intellectual and emotional bonds that tie us to the mind’s conditioned viewpoints.

In this silent retreat with Adyashanti, we focus on seeing through the mind’s constant narrative that distorts our perception and causes us to live in illusion, while all along the immeasurable reality is at hand.

This course is being held in silence, including meals. All participants must reside on the Omega campus during the retreat, must arrive on time, and must stay through the end of retreat (except for emergencies). This retreat requires parents to come without their children. The retreat begins Friday at 7:00 p.m. and ends Friday at noon. There are no refunds once the retreat has started.
