“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

Please join us at a beautiful, rural retreat location for a day of practice. During the winter months it is customary to look inward to clarify our deepest intentions, yet unanswered questions may stand in the way of knowing what our true priorities are. During this day of practice, we will have the opportunity to practice opening our hearts to our unresolved questions and inner dilemmas. These questions contain a rich source of insight; learning to live them brings about a radical shift that opens the door to clarity and equanimity.

This retreat is appropriate for all levels of experience. Led by Lisa Ernst, the retreat will include sitting and walking meditation, practice instructions, and a dharma talk. Cost is $50 plus dana (donation) to the teacher. A scholarship option is offered. To pay by Paypal go here.  Instructions for paying by check are at this link. Be sure to include your email address.

Retreat information and directions will be provided in advance of the retreat. For questions, email onedharmaretreat@gmail.com

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and learn to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.” –Rainer Maria Rilke

Unanswered questions, intractable situations, often appear to stand in the way of living from our deepest intentions. At times we might feel blocked even from knowing what our true priorities are. During this weekend of sitting and walking meditation, we will have the opportunity to practice opening our hearts to our unresolved inner dilemmas. These questions contain a rich source of insight; learning to live with them brings about a radical shift that opens the door to clarity and equanimity.

This retreat will be conducted “Vipassana style” with alternating periods of sitting and walking practice. Full information and registration is here.
