Sinsinawa Mound to hold Retreat, ‘Compassionate Acceptance: A Mindful Path to Healing Life’s Wounds’

SINSINAWA, Wis.—Sinsinawa Mound will host a retreat for people who have carried with them hurts, betrayals and traumas and are open to moving toward the healing process. Compassionate Acceptance: A Mindful Path to Healing Life’s Wounds will be held Feb. 5–7. Too often, we develop a type of aversion to our hurts—a kind of wishing they would go away. Deep healing occurs when we begin to accept and relate wisely with deep compassion to that part of ourselves that needs healing. This retreat, led by Tom Roberts, will provide a spacious and safe place to work on bringing mindful and compassionate acceptance to these difficulties. Through the exploration of contemplative, Taoist and Buddhist teachings and healing practices, you will be able to reach a kind of healing based on acceptance and compassion that is often overlooked. The registration deadline is Jan. 29, and the fee is $182 for a private room or $106 for a commuter.
