"When I think of Recollective Awareness and Reflective Meditation practice, I think of a truly open awareness practice. Mind is allowed to flow according to its own energies of curiosity and abidings, sometimes held within the light of awareness, sometimes releasing that container entirely and really allowing the mind to go ... un-tethered by conscious effort to follow it. Trusting it. Trusting the ability to recollect, discover, and learn, in retrospect."

Open Awareness Retreat
Australia (1 hour outside Sydney) – Brahma Kumaris Center
Suggested support and fees: To be determined upon length of retreat and retreat center –
We have established our registration fees and support as a range, rather than setting one amount to cover expenses with a request for an additional donation for the teachings. The low end of the range covers only out-of-pocket expenses for the retreat center and teachers. Payment at the higher ranges support the teaching and living expenses for Linda Modaro, honorariums for co-teachers, and students experiencing financial challenges. We do not want to turn anyone away for lack of financial resources. Those who cannot afford the lowest range should talk to Linda; we will try to find a way to work it out.
Meeting at the retreat: Whether you are new to meditation or have a long-term practice, meditation retreats are held within an open and flexible schedule, allowing you to participate at your own level. All retreats will be held in quiet with talking during the groups and discussions, or by arrangement with individuals talking a walk away from the quiet areas.
Meditation sittings are done in silence, several sittings per day, Dharma talks and discussion, along with small group interviews where each person will have the opportunity to explore and investigate what they are aware of in the meditation sitting, and listen to others do the same.
By allowing your life into your meditation practice, you will leave this retreat with a greater understanding of mindfulness, and be able to recognize and incorporate the beneficial qualities that develop in a flexible meditation practice.
Please note we include free time, time for reading or exercise in our retreat schedule, and vegetarian meals will be served.
