Awakening from Our Illusion of Separateness: The Practice of Relational Awareness


  • Copper Beech Institute 303 Tunxis Road West Hartford, CT, 06107 United States (map)

There are many ways to approach the practice of meditation. On the Buddhist path meditation is a tool to uncover the true peace of our own inner awakened nature. Rather than a “self-help” technique or a limited transactional method, Buddhist meditation aims to cultivate a relational awareness. One where the development of our own inner peace connects into responsibility and altruism towards others.

Through a combination of experiential learning and meditation, this weekend workshop will explore the intersections of core Buddhist principles and our everyday lives, where integrative meditation practices meet the world around us. We will focus on:

- Learning to connect with the root of meditative awareness

- Working with “overactive judgment” and distinguishing between reacting and responding

- Connecting meditative awareness into our relationships and the world around us

- Accessing a unified ground of presence in the body that can heal relational wounds and deepen our interpersonal relationships

- Learning how to connect the benefits of meditative awareness into compassionate action

Tuition: $250, plus accommodations
