The Middle Way ~ Finding Our Natural Resting Place: Monastic Retreat

The Buddha taught the Middle Way between the two extremes of indulgence and repression as a means to abide in true peace, clarity and joy. On and off the cushion, living this Middle Way takes us beyond stress and boredom by offering a template to engage from a place of stability and openness. Together we will discover/rediscover how this practice bears fruit in real contexts, enabling us to be present and responsive to the way things are.

The framework of the Eight Precepts (which include abstaining from eating after noon), Noble Silence, chanting and simple ceremonies will provide a monastic container to hold and inspire us during this retreat.
