Advances in contemplative neuroscience and evolutionary biology have validated many ancient observations about the nature of reality and consciousness that Buddhist schools have refined over the last 2500 years, resulting in what some see as a new paradigm of compassionate humanistic rationalism (or as New York Times op-ed columnist, David Brooks, would say, ’Neural Buddhism’). And this evolution couldn’t come at a more critical time.
.
Many students of mindfulness find themselves waking up from the trance of personal anxiety or worry only to watch their newsfeed and wonder, “What in the heck is going on?!?” We need a grand philosophical lens to help us make sense of our experience in an ever-changing and complex world.

Join Brian Shiers, MA, CMF, AMFT on Sunday 4/22 from 10am-4pm for Awake In a New World, a day-long semi-silent mindfulness retreat. Students will practice sitting and walking meditation, and review the fundamental tenets of secular Buddhist psychology that intersect with science. Details at lamaida.org

The Men's Alone With God Silent Retreat last week was a powerful time of prayer and renewal.

#master Our dear and sweet master visiting the grounds. @acharyashreeyogeesh teaches how to achieve our highest potential. Highest potential has to do with the ability to live through nonviolence, practicing spiritual practices, experiencing oneness and balance, overcoming lower qualities, conquering fears, awakening of the soul, and liberating ourselves.

This weekend is for solitude, silence, and contemplation. Last year, Jenn & I made a list of the things we'd want to be known for at the end of our lives. One of those things is to engage in both activism & contemplation. Another is to tend the Earth in restorative & abundant ways. I'm turning my phone off now to be present to myself and the Holy Spirit this weekend at New Clairvaux Abbey. ✌️ #tenderlyrooted #contemplation #silentretreat #monks #tendtheearth #multiply #restorativefarming #restorativejustice #maketime #ihaveanamazingwife

I'm back online. 
I'm back online and I'm absolutely hopeless. I've already managed to message the wrong people 🤦🏼‍♀️😂

Happy to be able to contact my friends abroad again as I've missed you all and your beaming faces a lot. Like.... a lot, a lot. 
Reunited with my witchy poo Mila and it's Japanese for dinner tonight

On our way to a long weekend silent retreat and all we can think of is whether or not there will be enough food! Silence is golden but hunger is torture (for us, anyway). So, just in case.... We’ll take a burger with the lot, a side of fries and a buttery corn cob (by the way, this burger joint in Moss Vale is the bomb diddly. Drooly food and cool old school vibes).

Good morning Friday. What do you have in store for me today? What choices am I going to make? What decisions am I going to chose. What thoughts am I going to have? What feelings will I feel? What experiences are in store for me? Give me what you’ve got and I will be grateful for whatever.

Just finished a 3 day silent women’s meditation retreat @spirit_rock with nearly 100 women! Can you imagine that many women not being able to speak to one another?! 😂There is something really so special about being silent for a few days and not being connected to technology. What a beautiful experience with so many great insights. Feeling refreshed and renewed! Thank you @stefanotti and @ttreis3 for this incredibly thoughtful and meaningful birthday gift and to the teachers and staff for their service. ❤️💕 #vipassana #nocellphone #silentretreat #meditation

Doux souvenirs 💫
.
Souvenirs de mes 3 semaines passées en silence dans la forêt entre la Thaïlande et Myanmar en 2010, a méditer assise, en marchant, en cuisinant ....
.
C'était ma première vraie retraite (de plus de 2j), dans un monastère aussi chaleureux que minimaliste.
.
Je me rappelle encore les stades émotionnels que j'ai traversé : la curiosité et l'excitation du début, l'ennui, la colère, la peur, l'espoir, la confiance puis l'amour universel.
.
Je n'aurais jamais cru que faire face à mon mental, et l'observer, sans juger, serait si puissant.
.
Depuis, je participe à deux retraites silencieuses par an. Chacune d'entre elle est différente, mais toujours aussi ressourçante.
.
Douce nuit à vous 😘

The beautiful Lokananda Retreat Centre at Point Pass.  I'll miss the gardens, great food and my silent friends.

Thanks to Mal Huxter for leading us through this silent meditation retreat and Monique @synergyyogapilates for always smiling, teaching us yoga and meditation despite having a difficult family situation in the background.

I am a bit of a retreat junkie,  this being the 3rd retreat in the past 6 months (and many of the past 11 years since my first solo adventure to Broome). We all need to unplug and recharge,  reflect and restore from time to time.  From this retreat,  I was surprised at how much inner peace I could tap into after 4 days of silence and meditation.

I look forward to coming back here one day🌲

Starting today, I'm off to a 10-day Vipassana silent meditation retreat. I'll be spending 10 days in noble silence, meditating for about 10 hours per day. No phone, no talking, no books, no music, no contact with the outside world whatsoever. 🤐 It'll be me, myself, and my mind for the next 10 days. My intention is to complete the course no matter how painful it may feel. Wish me luck and a lot of patience! See you on the other side! 🙂 (I'll try to share some bits on my Insta stories today until I have to hand in my phone)

A few of you guys have been asking me about the recent retreats I went on. One was a one day silent retreat while the other one I completed recently was a weekend retreat (which wasn’t silent). Both beautiful experiences that I am still benefiting from ✨ I just wrote a #blogpost on the one day #silentretreat in @glenstalpax with my MBSR teacher, Donna who runs this twice yearly as part of the course. I will also write about the weekend one soon 😊 Link in bio 🔝

The fleeting nature of experience. The deluded but trainable mind. The fluid nature of the Self. The interconnectedness of all things. The power of compassion…
.
Advances in contemplative neuroscience and evolutionary biology have validated many ancient observations about the nature of reality and consciousness that Buddhist schools have refined over the last 2500 years, resulting in what some see as a new paradigm of compassionate humanistic rationalism (or as New York Times op-ed columnist, David Brooks, would say, ’Neural Buddhism’). And this evolution couldn’t come at a more critical time.
.
Join Brian Shiers, MA, CMF, AMFT for a semi-silent retreat Awake In a New World this Sunday 4/22 from 10am-4pm.
.
Practice sitting and walking meditation. Review Foundational Buddhist frameworks, such as the Four Noble Truths (or, Why things are the way they are and what to do about it), the Three Marks of Existence (or, The seeds of human drama), the Three Poisons (or, The trouble with being a biological organism), and the real nature of Karma (or, Reactive patterns and how to dissolve them).

The Labyrinth: "The labyrinth is a walking meditation, a path of prayer and an archetypal blueprint where psyche meets Spirit. It has only one path that leads from the outer edge in a circuitous way to the center.There are no tricks to it and no dead ends. Unlike a maze where you lose your way, the labyrinth is a spiritual tool that can help you find your way." Our silent meditation retreat schedule went something like this:
6am Wake up, yoga practice (led), meditation (guided)
7:45-9am Breakfast
9-10:30am meditation lecture
11-12:30pm sit (30mins)/walk (30mins)/ sit (30mins) meditation
12:30-2:30pm lunch
2:30-4pm sit/walk/sit meditation
4:30-6pm sit/walk/sit meditation
7-8:30pm Dharma talk
8:30-9pm Guided meditation

I really enjoyed the walking meditations.  We were blessed with beautiful summer weather (in Autumn) and walking the labyrinth was a wonderful way to contemplate whatever questions you wished to bring to it. 
Let me know if there is a public labyrinth in Adelaide 🙏

Als kleine Kinder drücken wir alle unsere Gefühle unmittelbar aus. Zwischen Wut, Weinen und wieder Lachen liegen oft nur Sekunden.
Im Laufe der nächsten Jahre lernen wir aus unserem Umfeld die ersten „Regeln” zum Beherrschen unserer Gefühle.
In der Pubertät bombadieren uns so viele neue Gefühle, dass Kopf und Körper völlig verrückt spielen.
Das zum ersten Mal gebrochene Herz wird mit einem dünnen Schutzpanzer umhüllt. Mit jeder beendeten Beziehung oder enttäuschten Freundschaft wird er ein bisschen dicker.
In Ausbildung und Job lernen wir, dass Gefühle dort meist keinen Platz haben. So wie wir uns den Anzug, das Kostüm oder zumindest die Jeans ohne Löcher für unseren Arbeitsalltag anziehen, ziehen wir uns auch die Rüstung gegen Gefühle an. Damit nicht zu viel von außen rein kommt, das uns verletzt. Und auf keinen Fall etwas von innen nach außen dringt, was uns zu karrieregefährdenden Aussagen oder Aktionen hinreißen könnte.
Im Laufe der Jahre vergessen wir vielleicht immer häufiger, die Rüstung auszuziehen, wenn wir nach Hause zu Familie und Freunden kommen.
Nach mehr oder weniger vielen Jahren hat diese Rüstung uns entweder das Fühlen komplett abgewöhnt oder sie explodiert, weil sich über Jahre so viele Gefühle unter ihr angesammelt haben.
Meist muss erst ein, im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, einschneidendes Erlebnis diese Rüstung zerteilen. Dann gilt es, Tag für Tag und Jahr für Jahr das Fühlen wieder zu erlernen. Schicht für Schicht den Schutzpanzer abzutragen.
Wir bewegen uns rückwarts in unserer Gefühlszeitrechnung. Lange Vergrabenes kommt zu Tage. Und an manchmal entsteht ein solches Chaos, dass man meinen könnte, wir wären in der zweiten Pubertät. Das Durcheinander mit all seinen Facetten zuzulassen, ist mit 40 nicht leichter als mit 14.
Aber vermutlich der einzige Weg zu innerem Frieden. Und äußerem Frieden.
Ich übe mich im Zulassen.
Übe du dich im Zulassen.
Damit kommende Generationen vielleicht irgendwann keine Rüstung mehr brauchen.

In der Pubertät bombadieren uns so viele neue Gefühle, dass Kopf und Körper völlig verrückt spielen. Das zum ersten Mal gebrochene Herz wird mit einem dünnen Schutzpanzer umhüllt. Mit jeder beendeten Beziehung oder enttäuschten Freundschaft wird er ein bisschen dicker. In Ausbildung und Job lernen wir, dass Gefühle dort meist keinen Platz haben. So wie wir uns den Anzug, das Kostüm oder zumindest die Jeans ohne Löcher für unseren Arbeitsalltag anziehen, ziehen wir uns auch die Rüstung gegen Gefühle an. Damit nicht zu viel von außen rein kommt, das uns verletzt. Und auf keinen Fall etwas von innen nach außen dringt, was uns zu karrieregefährdenden Aussagen oder Aktionen hinreißen könnte. Im Laufe der Jahre vergessen wir vielleicht immer häufiger, die Rüstung auszuziehen, wenn wir nach Hause zu Familie und Freunden kommen. Nach mehr oder weniger vielen Jahren hat diese Rüstung uns entweder das Fühlen komplett abgewöhnt oder sie explodiert, weil sich über Jahre so viele Gefühle unter ihr angesammelt haben. Meist muss erst ein, im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, einschneidendes Erlebnis diese Rüstung zerteilen. Dann gilt es, Tag für Tag und Jahr für Jahr das Fühlen wieder zu erlernen. Schicht für Schicht den Schutzpanzer abzutragen. Wir bewegen uns rückwarts in unserer Gefühlszeitrechnung. Lange Vergrabenes kommt zu Tage. Und an manchmal entsteht ein solches Chaos, dass man meinen könnte, wir wären in der zweiten Pubertät. Das Durcheinander mit all seinen Facetten zuzulassen, ist mit 40 nicht leichter als mit 14. Aber vermutlich der einzige Weg zu innerem Frieden. Und äußerem Frieden. Ich übe mich im Zulassen. Übe du dich im Zulassen. Damit kommende Generationen vielleicht irgendwann keine Rüstung mehr brauchen.

Photo taken exactly one year ago by 📷 @amsaiz13 in our beloved Encinitas, CA... remembering the importance to remain fully open to life, even in times of turbulence; for it is in openness that there is forgiveness, acceptance, bliss...Sending love to all and wishes for a peaceful and blissful lifetime 💙💙💙 #heartwideopen

I had the opportunity to spend 4 days in silence last week, on a meditation retreat (thanks to Mal Huxter for his teachings and Monique @synergyyogapilates for hosting). We were really in the "middle of nowhere" in a very small town called Point Pass.  In silence, you discover an appreciation for nature and history, and there was a lot of history in this little town of 26 houses.  Originally settled by Germans with their "100 acre" allotments who brought their farming and wine making skills to the Clare Valley region.

Certainly a beautiful and peaceful place to contemplate life

Our final 'Silent Stillness Retreat' for the season here in the jungle has come to an end. But sweet silent stillness is always on offer at Khaama Kethna and the serenity of the jungle is the perfect place to escape the world and truly unwind. We are open all year and offer great deals for during monsoon. We will look forward to helping more people find their sweet silent stillness next season.

‘Listen to silence. It has so much to say’ - Rumi
.
I really enjoyed (and needed!) my first silent retreat today.  Lots of meditation, learning about Buddhism and appreciating nature at the peaceful Greenacres Chilterns. I actually felt compelled to hug a tree when no-one was looking (that deserves its own post another time!)
.
I know a whole day of silence isn’t everyone’s idea of fun but i found it liberating to experience my surroundings and the experience in my own way, without conversation
.
How do you know your own thoughts?  Are they really your own thoughts or influenced by those of people around you and the general noise of modern living? Do you ever take some time to just sit and be quiet?
.
Silence is where the magic happens ✨

Me, Raw Chef in a retreat?
Sí, todo es posible 🙏🏼😁
Today, I am leaving for a 7-day silent retreat in the jungle. Off the grid.
With my friend Eva, we’ll prepare healthy raw-vegan-gluten free food con mucho amor. A lot of exciting content to come soon...
Be prepared for the return of the Fruit Mandalas! 😁

I'll be leaving to Delaware to my first 10 Day vipassana, which is a silent retreat. No distractions, just 10 days of silent meditation. No expectation I say but we will see. Sounds pretty hardcore for me but after the last ungrounded weeks I have had, I actually am looking forward to it. I will be going black soon but when I reemerge I'd like to share about my experience. See you on the other side! Lmao! #photography #streetphotography #lookingup #streetfind#streetart #nyc #nycstreets #anotherspiritualadventure #vipassana #silentretreat
