Our Natural Connection to the Earth: Touching the Sun – A Daylong Retreat

July 24, 2021

9am - 3pm

This is part of a seasonal series of events which help reconnect us with our home, the earth.

It will be held primarily outside in the garden at Heart of Wisdom.

Since we humans have walked the earth, we have found wisdom and healing through our essential connection with nature. 

We will explore practices drawn from the deep well of Buddhist traditions and indigenous teachings from around the world. The sun: living and giving abundance, power, life force, creation, the circle of life. What do we touch when we touch the sun?

By seeing and releasing the grip of our fixed views we open awareness to the present moment and wonder of our world. 

Join us in uncovering the wonderful teaching that nature provides, teachings that are always available and accessible. Nature is always resilient; nature can heal our separation.

Lunch will be provided as a part of our practice. Limited to 12 participants.
