2010 - IMCW New Year's Retreat - Awakening the Heart of Compassion

The New Year is a wonderful time to touch sacred presence and deepen our roots in spiritual life. In this silent retreat we will open our hearts and minds through practices of Vipassana (mindfulness meditation--both sitting and walking sessions), traditional heart meditations (metta), yoga (mindful movement) and evening chanting.

Tara Brach
Our core conditioning expresses as both a longing for love and the pain of not trusting we are loveable. This talk explores how we create the experience of separation, and the key meditative heart- trainings that lead us to realizing and living from the truth of our connectedness.
