4 Day Retreat in Montana

May 1, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - May 4, 2014 @ 3:00 pm


Choosing the Path of Freedom and Happiness: Transforming the Habit Energies that Limit and Define Us

A Four Day retreat with the Open Way Mindfulness Center, Flowing Mountains Sangha, and Big Sky Sangha in Montana.

Our daily lives are often strongly affected by habit energies within us, patterns of reactivity, busyness, stress and anxiety. In these moments, we feel as though we lose ourselves, we are overwhelmed, as though life and our relationships are a burden and a struggle.
In this retreat, with the cultivation of mindfulness as a base, we will practice to strengthen our capacity to choose the course of each day in freedom and goodness. This begins with mindfulness of breathing, sitting, walking, talking, listening, and eating. Then it grows as we learn to look deeply and discover how our misconceptions of ourselves, our loved ones and the world are the cause of our suffering. Looking deeply we also begin to realize our marvelous true nature and our limitless capacity to understand and love.
Our habit energies are strong, but they are also impermanent, and with insight and practice we can transform them, we can lift ourselves out of our daily struggles and into an experience of the depth, beauty and sacredness of life.
