On this last evening of our monthlong retreat (two months for some), we explore how to bring our practice out in our daily lives in the world. We examine (1) the nature of the archetypal "return" in the spiritual journey; (2) the figure of the bodhisattva; and 3) some suggestions for foundational, intermediate, and advanced modes of daily life practice.
Join Kittisaro & Thanissara for the launch of their new book, "Listening to the Heart" for this Friday evening talk.
The Buddha taught “Be a light unto yourself.” He also encouraged the development of spiritual friendship for mutual support along the path. Tonight we invite you to join us in friendship and celebration of the Dharma in our lives that ever guides us as we “Listen into the Heart.”
The Buddha said that hatred never ceases by hatred, but only by love. How can we heal from interactions with others that have hurt us or closed our heart? Once we learn to hold what has happened in a wise way, the heart can open and transform the hurt into compassionate understanding.
