Into the Wild Festival news: Love & Compassion : Summer Dzogchen Retreat with James Low

Latest update from Into the Wild

We have this sublime retreat in June, it really is worth taking time out to take time out….xxx

"Maintain emptiness and compassion without distraction. Always free of effort and struggle, contemplate the flow of awareness"
The key thing is to be kind to yourself. The barriers we have to entering into presence are already hard enough. If we try to become great heroes and push our way through we will make the resistance even greater. Tenderness and love are always important. Being tender towards ourselves, being very finely attuned to what is going on. We are simply being present to whatever occurs, here and now.

If somebody comes to us and tells us they have done terrible things and they are really upset by it, we are touched by that and we want to help them. All the stupid or bad things that we feel that we have done, the things that we feel ashamed about, we have only ever done them out of confusion or pain, out of ignorance.

The path to integration is not through punishment but through tenderly accepting ourselves as we are, so we can come close to ourselves. And if we come close to ourselves then the most subtle breach of subject and object as two entities is gradually collapsed. And through the moment of loving ourselves very deeply and profoundly, which is at the heart of true meditation, we make this primary integration into our true nature.

If we take up this tender attention it will take us into the depths of meditative evenness, which means the state in which the mind is not disturbed by anything that arises. And that will naturally integrate into our daily lives, where we find ourselves in the world with other people. If we can be relaxed, open and at ease in these two states, that is said to be awake.

The natural condition is not against you, other people are not against you in your nature, primarily we against ourselves. When we get on the same side as ourselves, the world turns around and we start to feel this flow of energy flowing through us. And we start to awaken to the fact that we are nothing but this non dual integrated manifestation of presence."

Being Right Here.

The mirror of clear meaning.

We create gatherings that lift the heart and spirit. We like to make our events affordable so that everyone is able to attend and enjoy the beauty of the wild, the splendour of ecstatic music and the joy and nurturing of a supportive community.

hens can do that as well

A bit like Pilates

Reminds me of the time Dad had one sit on the tip of his fishing rod on the River Kennet. An amazing and rare experience.

Chickens do this when you hold them as well. I wonder if it's a bird thing in general 🤔
