Basic meditation instruction and practice will be emphasized in this retreat.
All the teachings of the Buddha are about revealing our innate nature of love, compassion, & wisdom. Every single one of us already has this perfect nature, even if we‰۪ve not fully discovered it. Yet this is something that is possible for all of us‰ÛÒeveryone can actualize their beautiful nature & become perfectly enlightened.
In order to completely reveal our inherent love & wisdom, the Buddha taught methods of study to refine our conceptual intelligence, & methods of meditation to open our hearts to their full potential.
During this retreat, we‰۪ll explore some key points of study & meditation that will calm our minds and expand our hearts, revealing an infinite treasure of confidence, goodness, & beauty that will support lasting peace & happiness in this world. Everyone is warmly welcome to attend all or part of this retreat!
Suggested donation: $60 for the entire retreat or $20 per session.
