‘Everyday is a journey and the journey itself is home’. Bashō
We live in a world where there is tremendous pressure and speed. Violence and fear are everywhere. We are like driftwood caught in a torrent. Rarely is there a moment of stillness and silence. There is very little space and time to discover what it actually means to be a human being and live naturally and gracefully with intelligence and affection.
Yet it need not be so if we take the time to listen, think and meditate.
We have to learn who we are, what we are, where we are and what it means to be a human being. We need to see the truth directly for ourselves. The main point of our retreat is to explore both surfaces and depths of our life, using the teachings and maps of mind provided by the Buddha as our compass. It involves looking into the shadow lands of the human psyche and as well rediscovering our true nature, our true home.
