Unanswered questions and intractable situations often appear to stand in the way of living from our deepest intentions. At times we might feel blocked even from knowing what our true priorities are. During this day of sitting and walking meditation, we will have the opportunity to practice opening our hearts to our unresolved inner dilemmas, rather than trying to solve them. These questions contain a rich source of insight; learning to live with them brings about a radical shift that opens our hearts to clarity and equanimity.
This daylong will include instructions, silent and guided meditations, walking practice, dharma talk and time for questions.
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and learn to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.” — Rainer Maria Rilke
