Silent Weekend Retreat-- Love Meets Wisdom

  • Copper Beech Institute West Hartford, CT (map)


“Love says 'I am everything.' Wisdom says 'I am nothing.' Between the two, my life flows.”

– Nisargadatta Maharaj

When, through insight, the mind becomes free of the obstacles of self and other, the unlimited potential for compassion and freedom co-arise. In much of our practice, these obstacles arise as the common hindrances and by falling into habitual thought and emotional patterns. This intensive silent retreat will be an opportunity to discover creative ways through these obstacles so that the experience of freedom isn’t just a fleeting glimpse but a place in which we can reside. We will be alternating between various sitting practices and mindful movement practices. While the retreat will be held in noble silence there will be periods for questions and individual meetings with the teacher.
