Softening the Hard Edges

Event Date: 
May 4, 2018 - May 6, 2018
Event Location: 
Prairiewoods 120 E Boyson Rd, Hiawatha, IA 52233

The spiritual path has become crowded with numerous "methods" and practices. This retreat will be an opportunity to work deeply in a gentle and focused fashion restoring our innate connection to the divine. We will embrace the opportunity to quiet the noise and distractions to become reacquainted with the essence of clear and deep spiritual practice in. We will work with deep meditation, creative expression and re-uniting with the creation of which we are a part.

We will be working off the first lines 7th century poem by Sosan: 

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences. When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised. Make the smallest distinction, however, and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.If you wish to see the truth then hold no opinion for or against. The struggle of what one likes and what one dislikes is the great unrest of the mind.

Consider this:

You are the way and you are the goal; There is no distance between you and the goal.

You are the seeker and you are the sought; there is no distance between the seeker and the sought.

You are the worshiper and you are the worshiped. You are the disciple and you are the master.

You are the means and you are the end; this is the great way.
