Strengthening the Heart-Mind: A Retreat for Experienced Dharma Practitioners

During this online retreat we will focus on strengthening our meditation practice and wholesome qualities such as patience, calm, mindfulness, investigation, kindness and equanimity. When they are well developed, these qualities empower us to relate wisely and compassionately to our own struggles and to the suffering of others. These qualities also have the power to dispel the ignorance that keeps us distracted from natural ease and freedom. This learning process will be supported through reflections and suggestions on formal meditation practice, Dharma talks and some optional Q&A sessions.
