Inner and Outer Nature (2nd week only)
With Johann Robbins and David Loy
July 27 - August 4, 2019
The Inner and Outer Nature retreats include deep nature practice, immersing in the natural world, connecting our inner nature with outer nature, and dissolving separation. Each day includes plentiful time for sitting, hiking/walking meditation, as well as instruction in nature meditation, Dharma talks, and individual and group practice discussions. There is also a three day optional solo. Combining both retreats into a two week retreat is encouraged.
Johann teaches Dharma and Insight Meditation using contemporary language. He has been meditating since 1974 and was asked to begin teaching in 2008. His primary teachers are Shinzen Young, Eric Kolvig, and Adyashanti. He is the director of Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Center and teaches there frequently.
