Fall Retreat: Awakening from Fear | Oct 9, 2015 - Oct 11, 2015

Join Caverly Morgan for an urban weekend retreat “Awakening from Fear.” At Opening to Life, 407 NE 12th Ave in Portland, Oregon.

$125 early bird / $150 regular. Register by September 14th for early bird pricing.

We need not avoid fear. Fear belongs to the illusion of a self that is separate from life. It is the byproduct of identifying with that illusion. Often, fear arises in the very moment that our awareness practices are bringing us closer to a direct experience of who we authentically are. For this reason, in practice, we can reframe our experience by seeing fear as a green light rather than a red light. We can learn to move towards, rather than away. If we want to live without fear, we must first learn how to live with it.

This retreat is not for those who hope to finally learn how to control fear. This workshop is for those who are interested in accessing the place of fearlessness that is known by awareness itself. It’s for those who long for the clarity that allows us to have perspective regarding the nature of fear, along with the wisdom to recognize fear as a creation of the conditioned mind. Fear has no place to take root in the mind of clarity and the heart of wisdom. Through learning to be with fear, we learn what it means to live without it.

This non-residential retreat will begin Friday October 9th at 6pm and end Sunday October 11th at 3pm. A mindful vegetarian lunch will be served on Saturday.

Please note: Cost does not include Dana (donation) for the retreat teachings that One House of Peace offers. Tax-deductible donations for the teachings will be collected at the end of retreat.

“The power of retreat with Caverly is that you are guided to design and practice a ‘tool kit’ to recognize and intercept the internal negative talk and feelings we each have. This happens through the mentoring of a skillful teacher, intimate dialogue with other workshop members, and the repeated practice of exercises that connect with the breath, calm the mind, and energize the whole system. Over the several days of a retreat, your ability to practice gets deeper, no matter what level you start at, and stays with you longer in your post-retreat ‘daily life.’” — James, Arts Administrator

Retreat begins at 5pm on July 26th and ends at 1pm on July 31st.
