Dive into the mysterious heart of practice with meditation teacher and award-winning writer Jeff Warren, coauthor of the best seller Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics.
During this retreat we explore how mindfulness and meditation “work” from the inside and how to recognize what core attentional skills are being trained, so we can develop them in both sitting and in life. We also learn what it means to be our own teacher, able to adapt our meditation to fit our own unique circumstances and nervous system.
Warren teaches that meditation can be ridiculously helpful, and it doesn’t have to look anything like the stereotypes, nor do we need to buy into a particular worldview to enjoy its benefits and perspective. We experience sitting meditation and discussion, as well as movement and nature excursions to keep the energy moving and the body limber. We learn to make a practice our own by finding an object, a style, and an approach that works for us.
This retreat is designed for total beginners as well as more experienced practitioners.
