Into the Wild Festival news: Clarity & Awareness Dzogchen Summer retreat

Latest update from Into the Wild

This summer retreat is a lovely break from everything and open to anyone, no matter what your financial situation, so if you fancy a sublime resource for daily life, come along…

What is important is not to make too much of our experience. We love to create magical meaning and elevate ourselves through our so called spiritual experience, imaging ourselves to be special. But from the point of view of Dzogchen, everything is to be liberated for presence has no ground or root. Good things should go free, bad things go free.

If we get attached to the moments when we have good health and all is going well, then when we get sick, we can become unhappy because we have attached our sense of happiness on an experience.

Enjoyment is different than attachment. Enjoyment is in the moment, attachment seeks continuation of the moment. The key then is to relax, be present in the moment, use each moment, each arising as a means of returning to instant present that rests on nothing.

The more you practice in the view, the more everything becomes a teaching for you, so that every song you hear in the food you eat or standing in a queue in the supermarket, everything becomes a revelation of the nature of mind.

Everything changes when we awaken to the realisation that awareness is unborn, is not a thing, is not resting anywhere. Then all our assumptions, all the beliefs that we have relied upon and have taken to be true about ourselves and our world, turn out to be false. Instead of helping us, these beliefs have just maintained the confusion.

But when we see that our nature is infinite and beyond conditioning, then we can simply relax and be present with both stillness and movement, realising that this very moment is all we ever have.

Our prime purpose in this life is to be kind and help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. Compassion is stronger than aggression.

All you ever have is this moment, appreciate your life, as it is, right now. You never know when you will pass on.

Don't look for happiness in worldly things, true happiness sits in the heart, it arises with the wisdom of appreciation and compassion for all sentient beings, which brings inner peace.

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

No, our prime purpose is to survive and pass on our DNA. That's it. And that's why you'll get results like this.

Well said

So proud of you....xx

"Look at your life. Look at the ways in which you define who you are and what you're capable of achieving. Look at your goals. Look at the pressures applied by the people around you and the culture in which you were raised.

Look again. And again. Keep looking until you realize, within your own experience, that you're so much more than who you believe you are. Keep looking until you discover the wondrous heart, the marvelous mind, that is the very basis of your being."

Tsoknyi Rinpoche

Why not get a different kind of present! Not another thing, but a life changing experience!

Super Early birds tickets on sale now for the best family festival in the UK! Into the Wild festival is an amazing weekend of workshops, music, delicious food, theatre, dance, wild games, forests, summer meadows and so much fun! It really is a fantastic experience for the whole family!

In the beautiful countryside of Sussex, only an hour from London but a million miles away, in terms of natural vibes....

At our Summer festival and it was wonderful to see so many amazing people of all ages, a whole tribe of children, running around with smiles and joy. We barely saw any children on phones and definitely not stuck stuck on a screen all weekend.

These are the memories that stir in our mind throughout our lives, of those summer holy days, running free in the wild.

This is what Into the Wild is all about....

If you haven't been to our spring event in May on our other site, come along its smaller and a beautiful time of year with bluebell forests full of songbirds and clear starry nights!
