Bringing the Sacred into Everyday Life: A Nonresidential Retreat
“Rituals, as important elements in human life, have been a significant aspect of Buddhist practice since the time of the Buddha. Rituals are a form of language that expresses many dimensions of our human condition, including our relationship to others and the spiritual life… As a way of being mindful, they can bring heightened awareness to aspects of our experience needing attention. When done wholeheartedly. They help us discover and express some of our deepest feelings and aspirations.”
With Community Dharma Leader Lhasha Tizer and Peer-led Instructor Betty King
When: October 12–14, 2018 — Friday evening, 6:30–8:00 PM; Saturday, 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM; Sunday, 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Please join us for a weekend exploring and practicing the special ceremonies and rituals involved in Buddhist teachings. This can be a way to strengthen your connection to the Dharma through “adherence to precepts and religious observance,” including ritual. These help us to prepare for the deep letting go that is needed for freedom.
Please bring your own lunch. A microwave and fridge are available; also, consider bringing a snack to share.
