I would like to share my experience with Natural Dharma Fellowship online retreats coming from Wonderwell. I have been a part of NDF’s Margha meditation program since 2012 and recently participated in two online Zoom week-long retreats (Lama John Makransky and the Margha retreat). I have been in a remote/online monthly Margha meeting since I began the program and also have been attending the live stream of the twice yearly Margha retreats.
I am deeply grateful for the transformative power of online retreats and teachings. The technology facilitates a strong sense of being taught one-to-one while being gently held by the larger sangha. This simultaneously magnifies and simplifies the rich teachings and becomes both a model and opportunity to awaken. The energy touches my inner core and nourishes it. Both my heart and brain abandon their individual filters and a third energy of hearing takes over. Buddha becomes palpable and new benefactor moments are born.
