Love + Spaciousness: An Online Weekend Retreat Exploring the Six Mahayana Paramitas
November 17 - 19, 2023
Friday 7P - 8:30P PT Saturday 9:30A - 12P and 2P - 4:30P PT Sunday 9:30A - 11A PT
The teachings of the Six Mahayana Paramitas are invitations to live love from the depths and to recognize our spacious freedom.
The play of spaciousness and love is a dynamic part of the Buddhist path of Awakening. Spaciousness grounds love in wisdom, embodied love is the expression of spacious freedom–the paramitas are practices to deepen and cultivate spaciousness and love in our minds, hearts and in our lives.
During this on-line weekend retreat we will explore the teachings of the Six Mahayana Paramitas: generosity, embodied ethics, patience, joyful effort, meditative concentration and wisdom beyond wisdom as ways of embodying love and opening spaciousness. The retreat will include dharma talks, experiential exercises, guided meditations and silent zazen. There will be opportunities for q/a with the teacher throughout the retreat.
The practice and teaching portion of the retreat will be recorded and available for all those who register.
Sliding Scale $75 – $150 + dana for the teacher
This retreat will take place online using the zoom app. The Zoom Link will be sent out a few days before the retreat begins.
