The Heart of Relational Mindfulness
DAY RETREAT: Relational Mindfulness
Jun 9, 2019 - Jun 9, 2019
We all struggle at times with how to bring meditation off the cushion and into the beautiful, dynamic, and messy realm of relationship. Relational Mindfulness helps us to bring presence, compassion, and clear-seeing, to how we relate — whether we are at work, with family, on a date, in conflict, or engaging with world issues. We can erase the myth of separation. We can remember the intrinsic interconnection that is who we really are. This transformative practice helps us remember that the quality of every relationship we will ever have stems from the quality of our relationship with ourselves.
The principles are:
- The Sacred Pause
- Deep Listening
- Inquiry and Clear Seeing
- Turning Towards, Rather Than Away
- Taking Responsibility
- Not Taking Personally
- Compassionate Action
Based on Eden’s newest book, this restorative and experiential retreat offers illuminating and heart-opening practices that can be integrated into every moment of life. It is appropriate for both meditators and non-meditators and involves meditation, experiential relational practice, dharma talks, writing, and facilitated group discussion. Bringing a journal and pen is recommended. With Eden and others, return to a simple understanding—that the subtlest form of love is attention—something we can only remember when we are present.
