Heart Sutra: Weekend Retreat
with Kim Kelso
March 15 / 6:30 PM - March 17 / 1:00 PM
During this intensive study and practice weekend, we will take a deep dive into the Heart Sutra - also called the Sutra of the Heart of Transcendent Knowledge. It is a rich traditional Buddhist teaching which is chanted all over the world by most sects of Buddhism. A sutra is a direct teaching by the Buddha which has been passed down through the centuries. This sutra is the story of how the Buddha offered the second turning of the Wheel of Dharma. This teaching on emptiness is relevant to how we see ourselves and our life experiences. Through practice, contemplation, exploration of the meaning of the words, exercises and discussion, we will together deepen our sense of the significance of these pivotal Buddhist teachings.
