Friday 9/4/2015 - Sunday 9/6/2015
7:30 pm - 1:00 pm
Radhule Weininger, Marjorie Schuman
It is said that Wisdom and Compassion are the two wings of the great bird of awakening; inseparable, both needed for us to fly as our true selves. Wisdom without compassion can be dry and lacking in heart; compassion without wisdom can be passion that burns you out and leaves you depleted.
In this weekend retreat, we will emphasize the interweaving of wisdom and compassion in the dharma practice of everyday life. Mindfulness Meditation teaches us to develop inner tranquility and peacefulness as well as seeing of our inner landscape clearly. Compassion Meditation allows us to cultivate a deep sense of caring and radical acceptance for our own and others’ predicaments. We will develop the ground of both wisdom and compassion using a variety of practices, including mindfulness, contemplative reflection, and compassion meditations. With this foundation we will learn to inquire deeply into the challenges that present themselves in our lives, bringing compassion to the difficulties we find.
The retreat will include instruction, self-reflection, and both guided and silent meditation practice.
