In this retreat, we connect directly to innate capacities of love and wisdom in the deep nature of our minds, to cut through our reductive labels of self and others by sensing them in their deep dignity and potential, in their Buddha nature. On that basis, we will cultivate compassion and wisdom as a force to heal, transform and liberate causes of suffering, without devolving into empathic distress or burnout. Equanimity, inner peace, non-conceptual awareness, and other capacities of awakening will also be accessed.
This retreat is for Buddhists who wish to deepen their experience of these innate qualities of awakening and for people of all faiths and backgrounds who seek an accessible way to cultivate powerful love and compassion for action that can be replenishing and sustaining.
Guided meditations, explanation of key concepts, and discussion with participants to clarify and empower practice.
