Escape to Reality - Rocky Mountain Meditation Retreat

Kadam Lucy James

Taught by Kadam Lucy James

August 24 - 27

All our negative minds, unskillful actions, and mental and physical pain come from ignorance grasping at things to be more solid and real than they actually are.

On this retreat we will access reality with a practical and philosophical exploration of the true nature of things, increasing our blissful wisdom. Our body, our mind, and our self are not as real and fixed as they appear, but like dreams, projections, and hallucinations. They depend upon our thoughts, so if we transform our thoughts we can transform everything.

Deepening this understanding is the most powerful way to let go of pain and negativity, grow our inner strength, ripen our compassion, and discover profound peace of mind.

The Teacher:
Kadam Lucy James is an expert at presenting Buddha's liberating insights in an enjoyable and accessible way, including for beginners. Having spent several years on retreat, her talks and guided meditations are deeply inspiring. Over the course of the weekend, Kadam Lucy will lead us much closer to the truth of emptiness and lasting happiness.

Whether you are an experienced meditator or a newcomer, this retreat will greatly improve the quality of your meditation. It's the perfect opportunity to get a real break from the busyness of daily life. Your peace and energy are sure to increase over the weekend, and you can bring these back home and to work with you.

The Location:
Our retreat takes place in the alpine vista of Highlands Retreat Center, Allenspark, with all meals provided. Spend quality time with wonderful company in a spectacular, relaxing mountain setting, with beautiful walks in all directions.
