Judy Lief leading “Stages of the Path” retreat at Zen Mountain Monastery in July

Judy Lief, editor of the Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, will be leading a retreat called “Stages of the Path: A Map to Guide Practitioners from Confusion to Awakening” at Zen Mountain Monastery in Mt. Tremper, New York, from July 3 to 7.

While the spiritual path is intensely personal, the Buddha himself taught that there are discernible stages along the road to enlightenment. Awareness of these stages can help us deepen our understanding of practice and more skillfully apply the teachings in our daily life. Over the course of this retreat, Judy Lief will use presentations, dialogue, and short practices to guide us as we examine each stage in turn, study how they work together as a unified system, and take up how such teachings can be useful no matter what our spiritual tradition may be.

The program costs $400 ($300 for Mountains and Rivers Orders students.) For more information, and to register, click here.
