Refuge: A Conscious Living:Conscious Working Daylong
George Pitagorsky, Michael Daner
March 29, 2014
10:00 am - 05:00 pm
Online registration is now closed.
Walk-in registration is available via cash or check.
The Conscious Living/Conscious Working Mid Course All-day retreat focuses on Refuge. According to Pema Chodron, “Taking Refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha does not mean finding consolation in them as a child might in mommy and daddy. Rather it is a basic expression of your aspiration to leap out of the nest…” We will have a day divided between Intensive meditation sessions and dialogues about taking refuge and the Three Jewels.
The session is only open to those who are part of the current course and participants in previous CLCW courses.
Teacher support: Suggested starting donation for a daylong is $30 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).
