Event Details

This event finished on 22 April 2018

Caritas is honored to have Stephan Bodian leading a 2-day retreat here in Tucson on the weekend of April 21-22.  Whether you’re flying in from Fresno or living in the Old Pueblo, this is a great opportunity to learn from a master without having to go to New York or another international location where Stephan might be teaching.

Stephan is the author of Wake Up Now! and Meditation for Dummies and has this to say about this retreat:

Whether through chronic or life-threatening illness, personal loss, financial difficulty, or global or political uncertainty, life has a way of challenging us to discover and draw upon an ever-deeper, more unshakable ground of happiness and peace. But how and where do we find such a ground?

According to the nondual spiritual traditions of Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta, the only reliable source of fulfillment lies inside you, in your own heart and spirit. Only by realizing your true self, your natural state of awakened awareness, can you find refuge from the tempestuous roller-coaster ride of life.

Fortunately, you don’t need to practice for lifetimes to have a direct experience of true self–it’s always already available to you if you just turn your attention inward and recognize it for yourself. In this weekend retreat, you will receive powerful teachings and pointers as well as guided meditations that invite you to awaken right now to your timeless spiritual nature, beyond the mind.

Stephan Bodian has been practicing and teaching the direct approach to spiritual awakening for more than 40 years, including 10 years as a Buddhist monk. He has trained with teachers of Zen, Tibetan Dzogchen, and Advaita Vedanta, and received Dharma transmission (authorization to teach) from Adyashanti. His books include Meditation for Dummies; Wake Up Now; and Beyond Mindfulness. For more information, visit
