Intimacy with the world, inner and outer, will be what we open to and cultivate during this retreat, inviting again and again a balance of heart and mind, friendliness and clarity. This sets the right conditions for wisdom and freedom to arise naturally. While sitting and walking with meditative presence and guidance from the teacher, we will discover for ourselves what is possible in this very life.
Pascal Auclair has been immersed in Buddhist practice and study since 1997, sitting retreats in Asia and America with revered monastics and lay teachers. He has been mentored by Joseph Goldstein and Jack Kornfield at the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Massachusetts and Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California. Pascal teaches in North America and in Europe. He is a cofounder and Guiding Teacher at True North Insight.
