Queation and Answer Session #1
Awareness: Balancing Wonder and Terror
Steve Armstrong Retreat
Goward House, October 14, 15, 2017
Saturday Morning: Opening Remarks and Orientation.
Using body and mind scan Steve helps the participants settle into the moment. He then gives
detailed descriptions of what is “normal” mind activity. “In every moment, there is a mind –
knowing and an object.” He then guides us through three mental activities with special
emphasis on recognizing the activity of awareness. He ends with how to dis-entangle ourselves
from the internal narrative about the objects we experience.
