Retreat Dharma Talks at Cloud Mountain Retreat Center

Embodied Dharma

This retreat will focus on an integrated approach of meditation
teachings and practices from Theravada and Mahayana which deepen
the embodiment of wisdom and compassion. Founded in calming and
insight meditation, we will also cultivate a powerful field of blessings
through meditation & devotional practices which draw from the earliest Theravada texts and practices related to Kwan Yin (Avalokitesvara) Bodhisattva.

The retreat also focuses on the training of mindfulness and skill in the cultivation of samadhi - the gathering of body, mind and heart into Awareness. A mind rooted in its own Awareness gives rise to strength of clarity from which wisdom arises. The retreat will explore the classical wisdom teachings of the Buddha which ripen insight into the nature of
emptiness. Samadhi and wisdom is further supported by the opening
and heart energy of devotion.
