"Freedom from the Little Me," a weekend (mostly) silent meditation retreat with Don Oakley. The event is by donation. We are all well acquainted with our everyday mind where we act out of our conditioning, attempt to improve our conditioned behavior, and strive to feel OK about ourselves. And then we hear about meditation we gradually learn to watch our thoughts and are able to achieve brief periods of peace. Is that as good as it gets? No, thankfully not. Beyond the efforting witness lies freedom. Freedom from what? Freedom from the burden of continuously propping up the "little me."
During the weekend there will be opportunities for quiet walks around our 160 acre property, sitting by the scenic Powell River which surrounds the property for 2 1/2 miles, for exploration of Nature, or simply to rest. You will be staying in one of the comfortable cabins. All meals and the event sessions will be in our Main Meeting Hall.
There is no charge for the retreat, but we ask that you bring and prepare one meal. Depending on the number of people attending, two or three people may be responsible for a supper or a breakfast. However, a tax-deductible donation to Well Being Foundation while at the retreat or afterwards will allow us to further this work of offering a venue for exploring our deepest nature. Your generosity is always greatly appreciated.
If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Patty (Patty@wellbeingcc.org) by Sunday February 11th to reserve your space. The retreats have been filling up lately, so if you would like to attend, we recommend that you sign up early.
