Online – Finding Our Fields of Love: Uncovering Innate Bodhicitta

Lama Liz Monson, Camille Hykes
January 21, 2022 - January 27, 2022
Assisted by Matt Fritts

Online Component of the Hybrid Retreat

This is the Online component of the retreat. If you are looking for the Residential component, please click here.

This weeklong retreat will focus on transformative practices that allow us to directly access the love and wisdom that are the very fabric of our deepest nature. Teachings and practices will enable participants to mature their relationship to their own awakened capacities. In particular, the retreat will emphasize ways to become receptive to the unconditioned openness, love, compassion, and wisdom of our inner being by participating in a field of unconditional love for self and others. Because parts of us may unconsciously prevent us from opening fully to our awakened qualities, we will practice relaxing into the naturally compassionate and healing powers of our own essential nature. As a result, our Buddhanature can increasingly manifest of itself, unfolding powers of wise discernment and loving responsiveness in action.

The retreat includes meditation sessions, teachings, yoga, and time for rest and reflection. Please have available clothing suitable for movement. Full attendance only. This retreat will be held in Noble Silence.

PLEASE NOTE:  For students registered for the Margha Program, this is the Margha winter retreat.

It is Natural Dharma Fellowship’s aspiration that no one be turned away from our teachings and retreats because they are unable to pay the full cost. In order make our courses affordable for all who wish to attend, we are offering a three-level fee structure that takes into account people’s differing financial circumstances:

  • Benefactor – for those who can afford it, this fee level helps provide support for those with limited financial resources and assists with the care and maintenance of Wonderwell Mountain Refuge
  • Course fee – for those who can cover the basic cost of an online retreat or course
  • Supported – for those with limited financial resources or recent financial hardship

The pricing options for a particular retreat are based primarily on its length and are intended to give you an idea of what it costs to offer that retreat. The amounts listed are suggestions. You may write in any amount that fits your financial situation. Any amount offered above the Course Fee level will be considered a tax-deductible donation and will be acknowledged as such.
