In the Buddhist tradition of overcoming hatred with love, fear with faith, ignorance with understanding, and greed with generosity, this weekend of meditation and reflection will focus on cultivation of the heart’s natural qualities of wisdom and compassion. We will learn to develop a greater sense of care for ourselves and for our world through the revolutionary spiritual practices of the Buddha. The workshop explores the way that true spiritual practice is an engagement with life that goes against the norms of our confused society, and is therefore an act of rebellion. Instructions in meditation and guidance in the subversive Buddhist path to liberation will be offered. This retreat is suitable for both beginning and long-term practitioners.
