Awakening from Delusion
A four-day online silent retreat led by Todd Corbett, assisted by Mora Fields
Thursday evening June 4, 2020 - Monday morning June 8, 2020
It is by descending into the depths of his own self that man wanders through all the dimensions of the world; in his own self he lifts the barriers which separate one sphere from the other; in his own self, finally, he transcends the limits of natural existence and at the end of his way, without, as it were, a single step beyond himself, he discovers that God is “all in all” and there is “nothing but Him.”
—Gershom Scholem (Jewish)
This is an online retreat, held via Zoom video conference. You will need a computer with Zoom installed, equipped with a camera and audio.
This will be a silent retreat, which in the Zoom context means we will not engage in social conversation during Zoom sessions, and we will keep silence as much as possible outside of Zoom sessions. You should attempt to have no communication with the outside world for the duration of the retreat. You will need to arrange a sacred retreat space where you will not be interrupted, which has sufficient space for walking meditation (or be able to do this outside in a secluded area).
This retreat is not open to the public. In order to be eligible to attend this retreat, you must be a current CSS member. If you are not a current member and are interested in attending a CSS retreat, you can learn about joining CSS and becoming one of our member practitioners.
This retreat satisfies the prerequisite for attending advanced CSS retreats. All member practitioners are encouraged to take this opportunity to deepen their practice.
The number of participants for this retreat is limited, and advance registration is required. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, except that priority is given to Foundations Studies students attending a CSS retreat for the first time. The final deadline to register is 27 May 2020. When you register for this retreat, you are making a commitment to attend every session on every day of the retreat. No partial retreat attendance is permitted, except that participants may be excused for the morning of the last day (Monday) if necessary. The Monday morning session will be used for participants to share their experiences, difficulties and insights, and we encourage all to attend, as it is a useful way to further explore the retreat experience.
There is no fee for this non-residential retreat. However, donations are greatly appreciated to support the Center's mission. Also, to help support practitioners for whom residential retreat fees are a financial burden, please consider making a donation to the CSS Retreat Scholarship Fund.
