A heart that is free from grasping is a heart of balance and buoyancy, of generosity and inclusivity. It allows us to approach each moment exactly as it is, without agendas and expectations, receptive to all that arises. A heart free from grasping has the capacity to hold anything and everything, transforming even vulnerability and grief into workable assets.
This day-long retreat will be a deep exploration into what it means to live with a heart and mind that is spacious and vast, even in the midst of loss and change which are inevitable in all of our lives. Is it possible to relate differently than our conditioning dictates? Is it possible to bring all our experiences into our dharma practice, whatever they may be? Engaging the teachings and practices of the Buddha, we will find ways to turn the sting and anguish of loss into a direct experience of enoughness – the deep joy, peace, and happiness within our own hearts that exist beyond mere circumstances.
This program is appropriate for both new and experienced meditators. Our time together will include sitting meditation with instructions, talks and time for discussion and questions. Everyone is welcome.
Full and partial scholarships are available.
