There is no more powerful insight for our spiritual practice than that of emptiness, Buddha’s astonishing and transformative explanation of the true nature of reality.
It is because we misunderstand our own nature that we think and act in self-limiting ways that make us unhappy and entrap us in a prison of our own mind.
Understanding how the self actually exists in a state of utter freedom and possibility allows us to become the person we wish to be, freeing us to truly benefit others and our world in the most meaningful and profound ways.
What are the benefits of this retreat?
– Learn to stop grasping at a limited self
– Experience the space of possibility within you
– Gain insight into how your mind creates yourself and your world
