Awakening the Heart
The Healing Meditations of Compassion and Love
Unicoi State Park
March 11th-13th, 2016
Clear Sky Mind Retreat
Details coming soon
Each year KMC GA does at least one country retreat. The past 6 years we have done our annual meditation retreat at Unicoi State Park. At the Clear Sky Mind retreat you learn special meditations, known as Mahamudra, to help us discover the clear nature of our mind. Mahamudra is a deeply relaxing, spacious, and profoundly illuminating meditation. By training in Mahamudra, your mind will become progressively more subtle and peaceful, causing you to experience a profound inner stillness and tranquility.
How to Prepare for the Retreat
If you are interested in going in 2016, we usually plan for the first weekend of December. The retreat is based on the books Mahamudra Tantra and Modern Buddhism by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. It is not necessary to read these books beforehand, but we do encourage you to try the guided meditations on the Meditations for a Clear Mind meditation CD and read the accompanying booklet. The meditations are very similar to the meditations on this CD. Especially if you do not have much meditation experience, we strongly encourage you to try this CD a few times prior to the retreat. You do not have to follow this advice, but if you do you will be glad you did!
