*This event includes Friday and Saturday; at the teacher's request, attendees are asked to participate in both days.
What is Karma…one of Buddhism’s central themes and a word that is commonly used and often little understood in our western culture? Understanding Karma is actually quite accessible and even quite ordinary, maybe even so ordinary that somehow it may elude our complicated minds. We will spend this retreat time exploring the basic meaning and the subtleties of this aspect of our life as our practice.
The retreat will include a Dharma talk on Friday evening and Saturday morning. There will be one sitting with instruction on Friday evening prior to the Dharma talk. There will be alternating sitting and walking meditation on Saturday with instructions. Small group discussion time with questions provided by the teacher and a whole group sharing and discussion will be included on Saturday. This retreat is open to both beginning and experienced students.
Please bring a bag lunch. Water, tea, and juice will be provided.
Teacher support: Suggested starting donation for the entire event is $55 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. All donations go to support the teacher(s).
