Great Eastern Sun : Part 1 in Sacred Path Series


with David Stone & Fred Schwieg
September 11 / 7:00 PM - September 13 / 5:00 PM

Great Eastern Sun is the first of the Sacred Path series of retreats. The symbol of the Great Eastern Sun represents the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists. Its vision is based on seeing that there is a natural source of radiance in this world, which is the innate wakefulness of human beings. As a result, we can appreciate ourselves and our world, which is regarded as very sacred.


The Sacred Path series of weekend meditation and study programs is designed to further deepen your experience of meditation and contemplation practice. It is an opportunity to learn further methods for opening the heart, perceiving the inherent richness of the world, developing steadiness of mind and increasing delight and bravery in the midst of challenging life situations. These practices are based on a societal vision and aspiration to help the world.


Completion of a Rigden Weekend is a prerequisite for enrolling in this weekend program.
