Beyond Mindfulness: Wake Up Now to Your Essential Nature
Tucson, AZ

The practice of mindfulness has its limitations, especially for those who are eager to awaken from the dream of separation and realize their essential spiritual nature. In this two-day nonresidential retreat, you will receive teachings and guided meditations that point you directly—without jargon or dogma—to your natural state of open-hearted, awakened awareness, that requires no mindful effort to achieve or maintain. There will be plenty of time for discussion and dialogue.

Beyond Mindfulness Three-Day Retreat
Garrison Institute, United States

Whether or not you've practiced mindfulness, you can wake up directly to your timeless, limitless, inherently awake true nature, without the need for elaborate practices or rituals. In this retreat, you will receive profound teachings, direct pointers, guided meditations, and focused inquiry that invite you to wake up, not next year or in another lifetime, but right now. The approach is grounded in the nondual wisdom teachings of Zen, Dzogchen- Mahamudra, and Advaita Vedanta.
