The Essence of Meditation: Letting Go into Being

SCOL - Retreat Center Goldendale

So much of our unease, self-criticism, despondency, or stress is caused by thoughts and patterns of thinking that we are often barely aware of. Meditation is about becoming more and more familiar with the essence of our being—that which lies beneath all fleeting experiences and is a source of inherent well being. This retreat is an opportunity to engage more deeply in this process and can equally serve as an introduction to or as an infusion of inspiration for this path of discovery.

Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World

KCC Portland Center 4936 NE Skidmore Street, Portland

We all experience grief, anger, confusion and suffering being alive in our world. Rosemarie Sweet and Carolyn Peck offer this workshop based on the work of Joanna Macy, Buddhist scholar and activist. Known as The Work That Reconnects, this process allows us to create a trusted group structure within which to better know our own fear, grief, anger and sorrow. Listening fully, all who have gathered can connect with each other in a deeply respectful way, and sense the acceptance, compassion, and connection that comes alongside the experiences.
