The Undefended Heart Residential Retreat

August 14 @ 5:00 pm - August 18 @ 5:00 pm

with Mary Stancavage

Aug 14-18, 2019 / Big Bear Retreat Center

This five day retreat will be an opportunity to turn towards ourselves with kindness and compassion as we utilize mindfulness to see how we armor ourselves and begin to let go. A beautiful definition of equanimity is the ability to be intimate with our deepest experience without preference which is also the definition of an undefended heart.

This is a chance to experience an extended period of meditation that is so vital to our practice. Retreats offer the opportunity to move deeply into our experience and know the poignancy of the human condition and the capacity of the heart. This form of practice supports our deepest intention to be free. This retreat will be held primarily in noble silence.

There will be periods of sitting and walking meditation with instructions, Q&A, relational practice and meetings with teachers. It is suitable for all levels of practitioner.
