Retreat at Maitreya House October 5-10th
‘Limitless mind; limitless compassion’
Most of the time we walk around in a limited world view. We construct our reality and inhabit it. We create our own prison walls.
Yet our mind’s true nature is infinite, open, always fresh, and allows endless possibilities.
In meditation, flashes of this truth can appear. The more we glimpse it and see that it is constant (because there is nothing there to change), the more our confidence builds in the wisdom of this underlying reality.
We will also notice that in this openness, there is no malice, judgement, or pre-disposition. More than that, it is imbued with loving kindness – a kind of reverberation like the sound after a bell has been struck.
In this silent retreat, Simon will guide the group, and each person individually, with practices that point to this truth and may open up direct experience of mind nature.
To help open the mind to its limitless quality, we’ll spend an evening with an astronomer, and star gaze with a powerful telescope if we have clear skies.
