What happens at a meeting?
The meetings are a guided space for presence, silence, self-inquiry, and truth. They often begin with a short talk and a guided meditation into our true nature. There is then time and space to explore any questions that you may have, to share your experience, or to simply be together in presence.
The main purpose of the meetings is to create a safe and supportive environment where we can explore ourselves deeply on the levels of heart, mind, and gut.
Although each meeting is different, topics that often arise are self-realisation, self-inquiry, humanness, presence, surrender, awakening and life after awakening.
Everybody is welcome, and no previous experience is necessary. The only requirement is a willingness to want to explore yourself more deeply. The meetings end with a period of silence. See forthcoming meetings here.
What happens at a retreat?
A retreat is the possibility to spend a longer period of time together in a safe and supportive environment to focus exclusively on self-inquiry, silence and inner contemplation.
Retreats vary in length from a day to a week. The daily schedule includes satsangs (meetings in truth), silent sittings, guided meditations, group sharings, deep rest, movement practices and walks in nature. In between the meetings we are in silence.
Retreats are a direct invitation into self-discovery. They are for those who want to establish themselves in their true nature.
Before attending a retreat it is recommended that you attend some open meetings to ensure you are ready for a silent retreat.
'My only wish when holding meetings is to be empty enough, still enough, and present enough to be able to truly hear you. And in truly hearing you may we together discover the silent presence within which is the source of all refuge, knowledge, and wisdom. Then there is no teacher, no student, and no teaching. Nothing remains other than which is naturally arising in this moment, and the unchanging Presence which effortlessly witnesses it all' Paul Hurcomb
