Holding On and Letting Go retreat, with Arinna Weisman
|September 23, 2014||to||September 28, 2014|
It is only when we come into relationship with our experience, in an intimate connection, that we are able to see clearly what supports our lives, the lives of others, and all of nature. When we notice the energy of holding on and the contraction it brings, we also begin to be able to let go. In letting go, the heart opens, and caring blossoms. This retreat will cultivate these capacities. Open to beginners and experienced students.
There will be guidance to strengthen effort, mindfulness, concentration, and loving-kindness through sitting and walking practice, inquiry, and dharma talks.
The cost of $350 covers food and lodging only. There are scholarships available; contact the registrar for details.
In the Buddhist tradition, the teacher offers the teachings freely. Participants are invited to make a donation in the ancient tradition of supporting retreats and teachers through a practice of dana (generosity). Dana for the teacher and the monastery will be accepted at the retreat.
$50 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your space; balance due on arrival.
