Event Details

Dates: January 12 – 13, 2019; 10:00am – 4:30pm
Sliding Scale: $150 – 400. Code MB1M19.

The Buddhist path is often characterized as a path of letting go. We practice letting go of clinging. Yet, the path is not merely about what we relinquish, it is also about cultivation. What do we cultivate?

The seven factors of awakening – mindfulness, investigation, energy, joy, tranquility, concentration, and equanimity – refer to both psychological qualities we can develop as well as practices to be undertaken. When fully developed, they express a life of understanding and love. In this retreat, we will explore these qualities of heart and how they come to life in our practice. All are welcome.
