October 10-13, 2019 
The Fourth Refuge: Trusting in Your Own Potential for Awakening
with Susan Stone and Ron Vereen


Serenity Ridge Retreat Center
Nelson County, Virginia
Thursday 5:30 pm –to– Sunday 1:15 pm


At times we may wonder if we are cut out for the task of meditation, as the sublime qualities we desperately seek seem so far out of reach. Habitual, conditioned patterns appear as obstacles until we understand that they are our gateways to freedom. All we need to do is to stop and see what is already here. We discover that what we are striving so hard to acquire are qualities inherent in the stopping itself. What if everything we need to be free is already here? What if we simply need to be still so as to see what’s getting in the way of more ease, well-being, and insight?
In this retreat we will practice stopping, settling into stillness, and taking refuge in ourselves – the Fourth Refuge – our own potential for Awakening. Utilizing Noble Silence and the familiar Three Refuges as our support – the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha – we will engage with a variety of mindfulness practices (sitting, walking, mindful movement, inquiry, chanting, mindful speaking and listening) to reveal the stillness that is already here. We will discover that to simply stop and be with ourselves as we are is our gateway to freedom.

October 18-20
Resonant Body, Spacious Awareness: The Synergy of Continuum and Mindfulness Practice
A Non-Residential Retreat with Sabine Mead and Ron Vereen

In this two-day retreat, participants will be exposed to a variety of practices from both Continuum and Insight or Mindfulness Meditation. Our time together will unfold and progress as we dive into practices that build upon one another. Designed to drop us into the spacious, formless awareness that simply observes all phenomena arising and passing away, the fluid and dynamic nature of existence can be directly known from a deep, experiential level. Wisdom reveals that the bodily form is movement, bringing forth the realization that movement is not what we do but rather what we are – formlessness within form, a reflection of the whole of the universe – returning us to the primordial world of the preformed.
