The Mind Unconfined

There is a way to release the mind — and heart ! — from confusion and wrong understanding about reality. Wise mindfulness can disentangle the tangle that cuts us off from joy and a vibrant heart. It is a way of living that includes meditation but also meditative presence in daily life. During this online home retreat we will put on the Dharma (buddhist psychology) lens to explore our experience and see how freedom might be possible no matter what is going on.

There will be instructions given by the teacher, guided meditations, teachings, periods of silent sitting and walking meditations as well as time for self-structured mindfulness practice. Beginners and experienced students are welcome.

We would like you to feel free to participate to the extent possible for you, considering your needs, family life or work commitment.

Teacher Dana: Fees cover retreat organizing costs only. Voluntary donations (dana) for the teaching may be given at the retreat.

In the Buddhist tradition, teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless; in the Buddhist tradition we also practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Your generosity is a gift that supports not just the teachers, but also the Sangha, the larger Dharma community, and your own practice.

Pascal Auclair has been immersed in Buddhist practice and study since 1997, sitting retreats in Asia and America with revered monastics and lay teachers. He has been mentored by Joseph Goldstein and Jack Kornfield at the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Massachusetts and Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California, where he is now enjoying teaching retreats. Pascal teaches in North America and in Europe.

He is a co-founder of True North Insight and one of TNI’s Guiding Teachers. His depth of insight, classical training, and creative expression all combine in a wise and compassionate presence. In addition, his warmth and humour make Pascal a much appreciated teacher.
