      This Retreat Seeing: Developing Insight by seeing more clearly through the lens of the Three Characteristics (impermanence, unsatisfactoriness, not taking it personally). Caring: Opening our hearts to empathy & compassion in the face of personal & collective uncertainty & difficulty. Exploring some of the ‘near misses’ to caring and how to rebalance to attend to compassion fatigue & co-dependence. Responding: How we utilize the gifts of Seeing & Caring to gather our energy to be responsive in our lives & the world. Enjoy a day of quiet sitting and walking meditation, which allow our body & mind to settle down and our hearts to open to an inner wisdom. In addition to insight meditation practice, Heather will offer teachings, guided practice on the theme, as well as optional Qi Gong practice & plenty of discussion about how to live these teachings in our daily lives.
