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.

In this three-day residential retreat at the Garrison Institute, on the Hudson River about an hour north of NYC, 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.
