At its core, the Dharma is practical, and the teachings on emptiness (Suññatā) are no exception. Far from being bleak and nihilistic, emptiness practice liberates experience to be appreciated in richer fullness. The profound teachings on emptiness, however, often feel conceptual and illusory, or even unapproachable. This online retreat is an invitation to open to the accessible and practical teachings on emptiness, to be witnessed internally and externally, both during formal practice and in our daily lives. Seeing experience through this lens offers freedom from the prison of our limited conceptual framework, the contraction of which can lead to greed and grasping or hatred and aversion, and the whole entangled web of suffering. When all drops away, the groundless ground of love and compassion emerges.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
