For the Love of Wisdom

With Anam Thubten and Willa Miller

April 9 - 13, 2018

This retreat is currently full.   We are no longer taking wait-list names.

We might think of wisdom and love as two very different concepts, but in the view of the great perfection, they are united as the luminous expanse of our own awareness.  Join Anam Thubten and Willa Miller for a five-day residential meditation retreat exploring the role of love and wisdom on the path of awakening.  Through teachings and experiential meditation, we will collectively discover how accessing primordial wisdom opens the door to unconditional love, and how moments of love offer glimpses into the depths of our innate wisdom.  Daily yoga, noble silence and some sacred chanting are included in this retreat.
