Through the six sense doors, humans are constantly in relationship with whatever is happening. From our interactions with each other, to a sound that reaches the ear, there is relationship. The important question in terms of Dharma practice is, "What kind of relationship is it?" Will it be one that supports happiness or suffering?
We will use the important mental factor of Investigation to help us explore what our relationship is with any given moment. Mindfulness of the body will be cultivated and used to support knowing whether the relationship it one that is skillful or unskillful.
This retreat will be supportive for both beginning and more experienced meditators. Our day together will include talks, discussion, sitting and walking meditation.
Full and partial scholarships are available. Everyone is welcome.
