Many of us are initially drawn to meditation practice as a way of finding peace in the turmoil of our own lives and the world we live in. This is understandable, good and necessary. And yet on our cushions, we find that the full range of human experience is present. We find not only peace and clarity, but also confusion, conflict and denial. Can our practice be a radical act of opening to it all? What if we were to turn towards whatever we find, with curiosity and whole-heartedness?
This Sunday service concludes our Weekend Mindfulness Meditation Retreat. Please enter the sanctuary in silence as we open ourselves to the practice of leaving nothing out.
