Supporting steadiness, openness, and dedication in our practice. Via a spread and open awareness that is intentionally receiving–inviting–the present body sensations into the spacious awareness.

2020-04-10 Opening Talk - Metta and Emptiness 39:19
  Nathan Glyde
Introducing the main concept of this retreat: sankhara-fabrication. In particular the insight that experience is 'made up' from an object in attention and an atmosphere of attention. The latter we could call the way of relating, or way of looking (as Rob Burbea teaches it). We can pay attention to different objects, and that affects expereince. We can also develop ('bhavana' = cultivate) other atmospheres or modes of attending.
