    “Running with the Buddha Within” Yoga, Meditation and Trail Running Retreat

    Marty Kibiloski and Michael Sandrock

    “Running with the Buddha Within” brings together Western running knowledge and Eastern insight meditation and yoga practices to look at the reasons so many of us “overtrain” in running and in life. Why so much work? Why so much running? Why so much anxiety and unhappiness? This retreat, led by 2:23:25 and 2:24:30 marathoners Marty Kibiloski and Michael Sandrock, will explain why, leaving you surprised and, perhaps, awakened. It is based on the work of comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell and on principles first formulated by the Buddha 2,500 years ago and codified in marathoner Sakyong Mipham’s “Running with the Mind of Meditation.” (Kibiloski and Sandrock have co-facilitated eponymous retreats for a decade; Kibiloski is coach of the popular “Running with the Mind” on-line meditation and running program; Sandrock is author of “Running with the Legends,” ranked high on lists of the top-20 running books. Both are experienced meditators).

     

    And what does Running with the Buddha within mean? It means running to that still point within yourself, what is called the Immovable Spot, where you am no longer buffeted by desire or fear: the desire or need to prove something, the fear of not getting what you think you want. You will leave the retreat with a personal daily training schedule geared towards your next goal race, from 5K through marathon, as well as an easy-to-stick-to meditation schedule that will not only let you run faster, but help you to live a richer, happier life.

     

    Come to the Running with the Buddha Within Summer Retreat: Run Faster, Live Happier.
    For more information please contact Marty Kibiloski: 303-596-5959 or Marty.Kibiloski@gmail.com
    Retreat is limited to 20 people.

    The Happiness of the Buddha

    With Barry Gillespie

    www.barryhgillespie.com

     

    The Buddha and his teachings are often thought of as depressing. All that talk about suffering! Actually the Buddha spent most of his time talking about happiness, how we can bring more joy into our own lives and into the lives of everyone around us. The Buddha was called "The Happy One" for good reason. On this retreat we will explore what the Buddha taught about happiness and how we can directly apply these teaching to our practice.

    Empowering Action

    With Johann Robbins, David Loy, and Kritee Kanko

    www.impermanentsangha.org

    The Empowering Action Retreat is a combination retreat workshop, exploring the ways spiritual practice can nourish an ecological and social consciousness based on wisdom and compassion rather than anxiety and anger. Mornings are silent, and include mindfulness meditation in nature (instruction is provided and beginners are welcome), both sitting and walking. The afternoons and evenings will be a combination of presentations, discussions, sharing, and exercises, often in small groups, with additional time for reflection and integration as necessary. The focus will be on awakening authentic direct experience and responsiveness to the state of the planet, and using that to empower and support an awakened activism that you can take back into your life. Click here for complete information and here for a registration form.

    Restoreth My Soul Flow

    with Frederic Wiedemann, PhD (and guest teachers)

    www.flashawake.com/retreat/

     

    This playful retreat is for spiritual beings who want to EMBODY, dance, flow, contact, feel contentment in their bodies, yoga, roll in the meadow, access deep inner guidance, and arch your across a boulder  … in Nature’s extraordinary beauty, healing, and inspiration. The retreat will include all manner of “micro-practices” (30 seconds are less) to access your flow state. We will also notice and work with all that  which blocks us from these divine states. I will focus on deep integration of this week with your default daily life “back home.” Our locale has beautiful hiking trails and amazing views of Indian Peaks. Lodging options include camping, shared or private rooms. Delicious vegetarian meals are provided. 
    SPECIAL FEATURE:  Tuesday Aug 21 at 1 pm thru Thursday Aug 23 at 1 pm will be a 48 hour solo/silent/soul/vision quest.
    INCLUDES:  three healthy meals/day, all snacks, lodging in a classic 1930's Lodge, unlimited Nature, and all activities, teachings, and 48 soul solo if desired
    APPLY:  email frederic@flashawake.com, so we can schedule a phone call/chat to see if this might serve your soul
