Description

Innate Presence: The Cultivation of Awareness

A Daylong Meditation Retreat

Teacher: Dawn Mauricio
Location: Yoga de l'éveil, 4847 Park Ave, Montreal, QC H2V 4E7

When we slow down enough what gets revealed is how our mind functions, how our heart responds, and our natural essence of presence. Through our practice, we develop that which is skillful, and gradually let go of that which is not, providing us the opportunity to become a better human being. This may sound like a tall order, yet when you break down your seemingly one extended life into individual moments, choosing wisely and living with heart becomes more accessible. During this day together, we’ll explore the effortless nature of awareness, which in turn leads to a more mindful life. There will also be a short session of mindful movement (optional).

This retreat will be taught in English. Questions and comments in both French and English are welcome and encouraged. All levels welcome. Places are limited.

What to bring: blanket, meditation cushion or stool, water bottle and lunch. Chairs available.

Cost: sliding scale $25 (students/low income/ unemployed)-$35-$45 plus dana (donation) to the teacher. True North Insight aims to offer rates accessible to everyone. Our payment scale allows retreatants to pay according to their financial means.

Cancellations: Please let me know as soon as you can should you need to cancel. It is possible to receive a refund up to 48 hours before the start of the retreat.

Please plan to arrive early. Doors will be open as of 9:30am.

Teacher

Dawn Mauricio

Dawn has been practicing and studying Insight Meditation since 2005, and has completed numerous silent residential retreats in Canada, the US, Thailand, and Burma, including a 3-month silent retreat at Insight Meditation Society. She has completed several programs of meditation studies from True North Insight, and Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Currently, Dawn is a student in two multi-year teacher training programs to enable her to lead silent residential retreats for both teenagers with Inward Bound Meditation and adults with Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Dawn firmly believes that how we offer ourselves in practice reflects how we offer ourselves in life, inspiring her to find new ways to extend her practice beyond the meditation cushion - and encouraging her students to do the same.
