Unfettering the Natural Mind: The Path of Clear Seeing

Seven-day Retreat | June 2014

Since the time of the Buddha, countless teachers have pointed out the innate simplicity and spontaneous wisdom of our true mind. Unfettered by conditioning and emotional reactivity, this mind has the capacity to guide and support us spontaneously in living an awakened life.

During this seven-day retreat in the beautiful mountain setting of Southern Dharma Retreat Center in NC, Fred used meditative texts, poems, and songs from the Zen, Chan, and Great Perfections traditions, to guide participants into the world of the Buddha Mind and show how to integrate this understanding in all circumstances of daily life. Unencumbered by any philosophical or religious overlay, the natural wisdom and compassion of these lineages of enlightened living was presented to demonstrate their relevance to our modern life.

This silent retreat included formal periods of sitting and walking meditation, guided meditations, daily Dharma talks, private interviews with Fred, deep listening periods, opportunities for solitary practice, and time to enjoy the natural beauty and peacefulness of Southern Dharma. The seven formal Dharma talks from the retreat are available below.
