Day-Long with Dorothy Hunt

Living Intimately from the Heart of Awareness

Saturday, September 15
10 AM – 5 PM

Enlightenment is simply intimacy with all things.
—Zen Master Dogen
Retreat Information

We can only be awake Now. Living awake means living intimately and directly, without separation from the deepest truth of our being, and without separation from the moment.  While our true nature is actually empty of definition, empty of concepts, and empty of a separate “me,” it can be felt, intuited, sensed in our daily lives. This retreat day will include silent sitting, experiential exercises, dharma talks, and discussion around the theme of living intimately, living now, and living with devotion to discovering and embodying our deepest truth.

Dorothy’s latest book, Ending the Search: From Spiritual Ambition to the Heart of Awareness, will be available for purchase and book signing during her weekend with us.
