Event Details

Join us for a full weekend of meditation instruction and practice with meditation expert Brendan Kennedy!

When we meditate, most of us discover that we can’t let our minds just simply be without being any “thing”. How can we free our minds from our karmic conditioning and habituation that prevents us from being who we really are—the innate Great Perfection? How can we begin to see or be the emptiness of mind and objects?

There are many methods to de-condition or de-habituate the mind so that it can start to be what it is; so it can start to be itself. For this weekend, we will explore one particular method (which involves other integrated methods) to help us be free from all the things that bind usthe practice of non-focusing. 

Brendan’s teachings are suited to those who have cultivated a daily meditation practice and are looking to deepen their experiential understanding of the practice. Through practicing together and sharing about our practice in an open forum, Brendan guides us to look at and transcend our habitual blocks to awareness and clarity and to give up preoccupation and distraction from who we truly are. This approach leads each person toward freedom from the trappings of ego.
