Inner Stillness: The Wisdom of the Desert
with Tessa Bielecki
June 10-12, 2011, Shambhala Mountain Center, Boulder, Colorado

In the midst of our harried lives lies a vast, unencumbered spaciousness and stillness. For millennia and across traditions, wisdom teachers have drawn on the desert as a source of inspiration to access this inner expanse. How do our own lives relate to the great wisdom figures of the desert such as Abba Moses and Amma Syncletica? Drawing on the teachings of the Christian mystics and other desert traditions, Tessa guides us through the practices of silence, meditation, poetry, creative writing, and immersion in nature to explore our own desert wisdom. Bring a notebook, your favorite poem, sturdy shoes, and a spirit of adventure.
