Online: Reclaiming the Sacred
with Scott Tusa
Saturday, January 9th, 2021 | 1:00pm – 4:00pm ET

When there’s truth, when there’s something profound, we can sense the sacred. Though we can feel it, sacredness can sometimes be this thing that we put outside of ourselves, which is impressive and worthy of our time and attention.

Yet even this is just another expression of our Buddhanature, as we externalize our light, our sacredness to see.

In Buddhism, we recognize this and work with both an external and internal sense of the sacred. For instance, the path may start with an outward form of the Dharma and slowly lead to more internal recognitions of our sacred nature.

This all starts with a sense of curiosity and appreciation. What may be initially confusing and incomprehensible slowly becomes workable via appreciation based on hearing, contemplating, and meditating on the Dharma.

In this half-day workshop, we will touch in with bringing the sacred more into our lives via dharma talks, meditation, and discussion. All are welcome.
