Finding True Refuge in a Modern World

In a world where so much is changing so fast, where can we find a place for our hearts to rest? From one perspective mindfulness and Insight meditation can be seen as rational techniques, with benefits confirmed by science. From another perspective our practice can inspire in us a sense of the sacred and devotion to something larger than ourselves. How do we hold these seemingly different orientations and world views? This retreat explored what relating to a sense of the sacred might look like in a modern context, discovering timeless refuge and meaningfulness in the modern world through Dharma practice.
