The Unbound Space of Nowness: A Holiday, Community Practice Retreat
with Acharya Melissa Moore & Shastri Charlene Leung
December 26th—January 1st (2013)

The Unbound Space of Nowness is a community practice retreat which invites everyone to relax into the gentleness of the present moment, the only moment we have to access the magic of space. The magic of space is that it's naturally unbound; unbound by worry, unbound by commitment and unbound by concepts all together. That is the gift of meditation practice, an opportunity to discover the potency of the present moment.

Join us for a week of community practice this holiday season, a time to be friendly toward ourselves in a season that can be fraught with stress. The week devotes space and time to meditation, body awareness, talks, personal interviews and discussion. Awaken to the goodness, freshness and wisdom of the season–which is our birthright.

A community practice environment for all levels where all levels of practitioners join together as a community. Shamatha, ngondro, Shambhala Sadhana, Werma & Scorpion Seal, Vajrayogini and Chakrasamvara as well. Everyday will begin and end  together, and each practice track has a focus of study and discussion.

Please consider coming to all or part of the retreat; however we ask that you commit to attending a full day.
