In this workshop we will explore what it means to take refuge in the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha in daily life in real time with real examples.
Taking refuge in the Buddha is the recognition that we all have Buddha Nature (The Masterpiece Within).
Taking refuge in the Dharma is using the teachings of the Buddha, the path the Buddha used to become awake. When people saw the radiance of the Buddha, they asked him if he were a God, a Deva, etc. and he answered, “I am aware.”
Taking refuge in the Sangha is the extended community of beings practicing the Dharma beyond the Monasteries and enclaves of folks committed to unlocking the Buddha Nature by way of the Dharma, the Buddha’s teachings.
Our afternoon together will include meditation, discourse, discussion and question and answer segments. This program is appropriate for new and experienced practitioners alike. Everyone is welcome.
Full and partial scholarships are available up to 72 hours before the start of the program.
