What is the most essential you that is present regardless of thought or emotion? Who or what has been present for all of your life experience? How does this spirit of constancy touch your life? Mukti will speak on these compelling topics and explore them with the audience through questions and answers pointing directly to the true nature of self.

This silent retreat day will offer a potent blend of stillness and dynamic inquiry. Mukti will give three short talks with opportunity for dialogue, several periods of silent meditation, some guided, and a session of Qi Gong movement. This schedule will offer attendees an opportunity to tend to inner and outer silence and to nourish the brightness that shines through delusion.

With the exception of Mukti's teaching and the question-and-answer sessions, the retreat day will be held in silence.
