Stephan Bodian

Beyond Mindfulness Three-Day Retreat

June 22nd - 25th, 2017
Garrison Institute, United States

Event Information

Mindfulness meditation has extensive, well-researched benefits and can be a helpful preliminary practice on the journey of awakening. But there's a more direct approach, which teaches that awakened awareness is your natural state, your birthright as a human being. Rather than spending years trying to achieve it, you just need to turn your awareness back upon itself to recognize your timeless, limitless, inherently awake essential nature. This recognition has the power to transform your life at every level and bring a peace and happiness that can't be disturbed by the ups and down of life.

In this three-day residential retreat at the Garrison Institute, on the Hudson River about an hour north of New York City, you will receive profound teachings, direct pointers, guided meditations, and focused inquiry that short-circuit the seeking process and invite you wake up right now, without elaborate rituals or practices. The approach is grounded in the nondual wisdom teachings of Zen, Dzogchen- Mahamudra, and Advaita Vedanta but does not require adherence to any tradition. The teacher, Stephan Bodian, practiced for many years as a Zen Buddhist monk and then spent a decade studying Advaita with Jean Klein. In 2001 he was invited to teach by Adyashanti. His books include Wake Up Now, Beyond Mindfulness, and Meditation for Dummies.
