You are invited to let go of your mind and enter into new realities
on retreat with renowned author and spiritual philosophy teacher, Jeff Carreira.
Meditation is a time honored means of transcending the mental reactivity and negative habits of mind that too often keep us bound up in our current realities and unavailable for more.
During this retreat you will learn and practice a radically transformative form of meditation called The Practice of No Problem. Jeff Carreira has been developing this unique articulation of meditation for the past decade and thousands of people from around the world have used it to enter profound states of liberated awareness.
When you meditate in this way the only instruction you need to follow is to have no problem. That means that no matter what happens and no matter what you experience, you allow it to be OK the way it is. Ultimately having no problem in meditation means doing nothing. When you don’t have a problem, you don’t need to do anything because nothing is wrong.
This deceptively simple technique turns out to be more challenging than it appears, but if you give your focus and attention to it the results can be nothing less than miraculous.
As you sit in meditation you inevitably find yourself struggling against unconscious habits designed to manipulate and control your experience into whatever you think it is supposed to be. Eventually you realize that all of your effort to shape your experience is not doing nothing. It’s just more manipulation and control and you can simply stop all of it and just let everything be exactly the way it is. This is the moment of profound existential release and spiritual liberation.
— During this retreat you will:
- Receive all of the instruction and guidance you need to learn how to consistently find the inner freedom that is always right here in the middle of the experience you’re already having.
- Learn to embrace the way things are so deeply that your energy is liberated, your attention is released, and you become profoundly available to experience in ways you never have before.
- Discover the open and receptive space of awareness I sometimes call ‘betweeness’ – where we have let go of our mental habits and are ready to explore new ways of being. You will return over and over again to this place until you feel comfortable resting there.
Our time on retreat will be split between periods of instruction and guidance as well as periods of silent practice. Long time meditators are sure to have new insights and breakthrough experiences and beginning meditators will have all the support they need to enter into deep states of meditative silence.
Lunch is included and will be served at about noon.
