What is investigation? What does it mean to inquire and reflect from a meditative point of view? We generally understand the word “investigation” to mean thinking. Learning to ask meditative questions – and learning what not to ask, as well – is a way of using thought skillfully. Encouraging a silent, sustained attentiveness is a springboard leading to the capacity to ask questions in a way that encourages interest and inner freedom.
The spirit of inquiry underlies all Buddhist teachings. The Buddha discovered that deep inquiry frees the mind from suffering and the pitfall of an unexamined life. Meditative questioning is a form of investigation into the causes of happiness and the causes of inner struggle and distress.
Together, we will learn the art of meditative questioning and clarify our life questions.
Our day will include sitting and walking meditation, talks, discussion, Q&A, and small group and dyad practice. Everyone is welcome.
This program will not be recorded. Full and partial scholarships are available up to 72 hours before the start of the program.
