The uncomfortable truth is that freedom from suffering is only possible through facing reality, not through running away from it. We learn nothing from running away – yet we can be very reluctant to let go of our strategies to escape from suffering, and we may not even be aware of them. Turning towards and facing the uncomfortable truth – this is the point of Buddhist meditation.
The primary focus of the retreat will be meditation and mindfulness, and there will be opportunities for Q&A and discussion on the theme. All welcome – although previous meditation experience is desirable before undertaking a 5 day retreat.
