How would it be if we could look at everything that happens in our world, including, or perhaps especially, the annoying or difficult things, as tools to help to wake up? In February we'll explore this question in many different ways as we kick off our 2019 theme - Bringing Everything to the Path - with this Day Retreat and a new Sangha Night Series.
Buddhist Ethics - it's not about being good.
When you yourselves know: "These things are bad; these things are blamable; these things lead to harm and ill," abandon them.'
When you yourselves know: 'These things are good; these things are not blamable; these things lead to benefit and happiness,' enter on and abide in them.
The trajectory of our lives is shaped by our habitual actions. Where are our habitual actions leading us? And is this where we want to go? Please join us as we explore these questions and more on this day retreat.
These monthly day retreats are a great opportunity to experience the benefits of retreat without leaving the city. Each month, through meditation, reflection and discussion, we will explore a different aspect of practice and see for ourselves how it relates to living well today. They are open to anyone interested in the topics, and no particular experience is required, though if you haven't meditated before you might consider taking on of our introductory classes.
