Description


Interdependence with Life - A Vipassana retreat with Adrianne Ross and Ruth King

We are in a time of many crises in the world, in our own lives and the lives of those around us. This silent retreat is an opportunity to take refuge in the support of the dharma, revealing our interdependence with all of life. We will create a safe container where we can develop compassionate awareness of our own mind states, moods, feelings and reactivities. We will explore how practicing and embodying the four fields of mindfulness can help us develop the well being, stability and confidence we need to respond with understanding and love.
