心齋 – 坐忘

Fasting of the Mind , Sitting and Forgetting

.
Cultivating stillness is the foundation of Taoist practice. Fasting from speech and sitting and forgetting reveals the underlying stillness – the ground of the heart-mind. Speech is the outer expression of the chatter of the mind. The chatter of the mind obscures ones true nature.

This retreat is an opportunity to leave behind the everyday worries and cares of the world, nourish vitality, and cultivate the spiritual nature. The retreat will be primarily silent with daily instruction.
