From Sanchi Reta as to this "Teaching Retreat" weekend....

"Inside these weekends, it is my effort to promote a living, breathing, dynamic contact with our sitting practice, to find the jewels as to how our practice segways into our daily lives.

It is both a time to clarify questions as to how we deepen this simple yet often challenging practice into 'WISDOM AND COMPASSION', and to support EACH OTHER through the cauldron of natural empowerment and release that is operative when we come together as sangha.

In my life, after many years of practice and contemplation, I am humbled as to the continuous need to create the time and situation to be WITH myself and others in a space of love and devotion to awakened living. A weekend retreat is often the impetus that I need to re-align, to re-commit, to re-connect with the Purity of "WHAT IS," without the endless distractions and interpretations that are operative in our life of speed and highly charged input through our senses. Without question, 'to drop out and tune in' in the expression of simple meditation practice, I come away refreshed, renewed, and inspired to FEEL life with more intuition, love, and mental clarity that is always available, yet often obscured.

The Cumberland River Sangha is a dedicated HEART for receiving practitioners of all levels, to support joy in our interconnectedness, and to create the space for the inner transformation that is available through silence and contemplative sharing. You are always welcome."

Fee: $265
