THE ART OF LISTENING FROM PRESENCE
With Francis Bennett
July 7 - 9, 2017
In deep listening, we may become aware of what we call our conditioning, our habitually unconscious or semi-conscious reactions toward each other and the situations around us. In this deep listening we may discern the palpable difference between just being here as we are, openly attentive, and the state of entanglement in a web of fantasy. Can we simply be present to what appears as sound, feeling and thinking in the midst of open silence, here and now?
Retreats are an opportunity to go deeper with Francis in silence, contemplation and enquiry.
The daily schedule includes periods of meditation and Satsang and time for personal reflection. Outside of the Satsang, where questions may be asked, the retreat will be held in silence.
