Integrating Your Shadows - a Path of Liberation [8 Day Retreat]

Led by Doshin
Creighton Universtiy, Iowa
Aug 16, 2020 2:00 pm PDT - Aug 23, 2020 10:00 am PDT

Shadows are those things that we hide, repress or deny about ourselves. They are a primary cause of our negative, emotional reactivity and they prevent us from fully and completely expressing our true nature. In order to live fully free and loving lives, we must shine the light of Pure Awareness into the darkness to illuminate these shadows and then integrate them into our very being. These Shadows can become allies! We can transmute them into Right Action, Pure Discernment and Selfless Equanimity.

“Be careful, lest in casting out your demon you exorcise the best thing in you.” ~ Nietzsche

Yokoji Zen Mountain Center, CA
Sep 24, 2020 5:00 pm PDT - Sep 27, 2020 1:15 pm PDT

Shadows are those things that we hide, repress or deny about ourselves. Emotions are the gateway to mining the gold that hides in the shadows!

At the Enlighten Your Shadows Retreat you will receive powerful meditation instructions that will help you to realize your own True Nature. From the stability of pure selfless awareness you will recognize the real nature and purpose of your emotions, and then find that Your ANGST really is your Liberation!
