The single focus of the Buddha’s teachings was showing humanity the path to ending suffering and reconnecting with our natural state of freedom and openness. The profundity and sophistication with which the Buddha expressed a path of liberation has given his teachings a timeless relevance, making them as practical today as ever.
Over the course of this month-long retreat we will live with the intention of mixing our minds with the teachings and directly experiencing our inherent wisdom. We’ll spend this time practicing the disciplines of the complete path taught by the Buddha: Shila, practicing the 5 traditional precepts daily in a commitment to refrain from taking life, taking what is not offered, sexual misconduct, false speech, and intoxicants, Samadhi, spending mornings practicing meditation, and Prajna, studying and discussing the philosophical and psychological frameworks described by the Buddha in the afternoons.
