A Double Rapture
by Anna Swir
Because there is no me,
And because how much there is no me.
Sometimes, when meditation is happening, we have the welcome experience of the world as larger and deeper and more layered and mysterious than we had been aware of. It can be a relief from everyday suffering and the agenda of maintaining or creating our identity as separate from everything else. It establishes our relationship with the place we're in and lets us travel into the wilds of what's right here, happening now.
This retreat will be an opportunity to experience this kind of space, to be deep inside something that's always here, but rarely felt. It's a chance to put down the normal narrative of who I am and what I need to accomplish. There will be a chance for meditation, sharing, writing, dreams, and doing nothing much at all. There will koans, stories, and teaching about meditation and ways of being present in unusual and difficult times.
