Event Description

Mystics from all spiritual traditions describe the disappearance of one’s self into the Absolute. And the world’s many contemplative traditions speak of the necessity of it: ‘dying to self’ and ‘self-emptying’ in Christianity; ‘self-less service’ and ‘true Self’ in Hinduism; ‘no self’ and ‘beyond self’ in Zen Buddhism; ‘self-renunciation’ and ‘losing one’s self in the Beloved’ in Sufism; and ‘freedom from the bondage of self’

in 12-step programs.

False self, true self, no self, self vs Self – what does all this mean? Surely “I” exist, so what does it mean for me to ‘un-self the self’? And why is it so important for spiritual growth and encountering the Divine? In this retreat, we will explore ‘un-selfing the self’ from a variety of contemplative perspectives so that it may offer compelling inspiration for our spiritual journeys and everyday lives.
