Finding true refuge in a modern world with Catherine McGee

1 October 2017 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH TO THIS RETREAT – hot drinks will be provided.

In a world where so much is changing so fast, where can we find a place for our hearts to rest?

From one perspective insight meditation and mindfulness can be seen as rational techniques, with benefits confirmed by science. From another perspective our practice can inspire in us a sense of the sacred, devotion to something larger than ourselves, resting on faith and bringing blessing to ourselves and the world. How do we hold, practice and benefit from both these orientations and explore what relating to a sense of the sacred might look like in a modern context? Join us to explore timeless refuge and meaningfulness in today’s world, releasing the heart and mind from the endless search for home.
