The Heart’s True Refuge: Finding Freedom in Compassionate Presence

Heartwood Refuge Retreat Center, Hendersonville, NC

June 23 – 27, 2021, Led by Lisa Ernst

True refuge is turning toward our experience and finding freedom even amidst the uncertainties of life. This retreat will provide a time to give our hearts and minds a reset during these challenging and uncertain times. Through the refuges of wisdom, compassion and community, we will cultivate a quality of kind awareness that embraces our joys and sorrows with equanimity and insight. Through mindful awareness and lovingkindness practices, we will begin to dissolve the illusion of separation and taste the joy of interconnectedness with all things.

This retreat will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, daily instructions and dharma talks, q&a and optional small group or private meetings with the teacher. It is appropriate for all levels of experience. Heartwood is a spacious campus and they are practicing excellent COVID protocols. Everyone will have their own room. For registration, go here.
