Only when we can be present in our lives Here and Now can we can meet others and our world with truly open hearts and minds. Awareness of the present moment opens us to greater freedom from our personal history and greater choice in what is yet to come. In this silent retreat, grounded in Buddhist mindfulness practice, we will explore what it means to be truly present. Such presence is the foundation of a sense of inner happiness and refuge and helps us be more skillful in our relationships. We will practice learning to pause: deliberately stopping in the midst of a busy mind to listen to ourselves deeply. We will learn to bring kind attention and compassion to the thoughts and feelings that arise and pass away in a constant flow. And, we will explore how to apply this increased compassionate and mindful awareness to the challenges of daily life.
Radhule Weininger, MD, PhD, practices psychotherapy in Santa Barbara and has studied mindfulness meditation since 1981. Marjorie Schuman, PhD, is a psychologist specializing in mindful psychodynamic therapy.
