It’s common for the mind to create fixed views about how things are in life. Yet wanting to pin things down into the known often leads to suffering. In this download set of the February 2017 Santa Cruz Retreat Day, Mukti explores a myriad of perspectives on what it means to delve into the realm of the unknown. By loosening the grip to know, and dwelling in the willingness to not know, we can dissolve all points of division and bring forth the boundless wisdom, peace, and possibility inherent in the unknown.

Quotes from this Download Set:
“When the thinking mind is more quiet, it stops referencing knowing and not knowing. The sense of known and unknown can register in a similar way in our being.”
“There is a third way where there is no referencing of a limited, human perspective or of a global, divine perspective.”
“The willingness to not know can be one and the same with a willingness to know; it’s just abiding in that availability, that possibility -- being receptive, but also engaged.”
“What would it be like to know that the one who’s sitting down to meditate is no longer the central identity?”
“The more that there’s complete permission to not know, there is greater access to clarity and freed-up energy.”
