FEBRUARY DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY
A workshop with Cindy Lee on the 7-point mind training and development of a good heart
“Following in the Footsteps of the Buddha: Selections from the Dhammapada”
An Urban Retreat with Lama Marut and Cindy Lee
How do we as laypersons live in the world in a way that is guided by and stays true to the Buddha’s teachings? In this year’s “urban retreat” we will explore selections from the Buddhist classic, the Dhammapada or “Path of the Dharma,” perhaps the most important Buddhist text on how to live a good life in the midst of family and social life. We will learn how to follow in the Buddha’s footsteps from the ethical foundations, to detachment from unhealthy diversions, right through to the practices and wisdom that bring about final goal of full Awakening.
For many of us these are days of turbulence and uncertainty; a time in which it is easy to fall into confusion, despair and a sense of helplessness. Spiritual shelter can provide reliable protection from these and help us more deeply connect to the strength, comfort and joy that allows us to navigate difficult times no matter what life throws at us.
The Cambria retreat will be just such a refuge where you can:
Find sanctuary in spiritual teachings and practices based on authentic sources from the Indian and Tibetan traditions
Train in meditation and yoga under expert guidance with advanced teachers
Learn about a whole array of “enlightened activities” that can bring more peace and fun to our lives
Share and discuss in nurturing, small group settings
Revel in the heart-opening uplift of music, song, dance, and other artistic expressions that tap into the bliss of the ever-present sacred sphere.
