The Liberating Teachings of the Buddha~ Retreat Scholarship Eligible
May 6, 2021

The purpose of the Buddha’s teachings is to show us how to be truly happy  by using the tools of mindfulness and clear understanding to reveal the unskillful tendencies  of mind that keep us bound to suffering. Joy arises for us when we realize, through our direct experience,  that it  is possible for transformation to come about. This silent  retreat is an invitation to explore the depth of the teachings  in this formal setting as wisdom and compassion is cultivated, allowing these qualities to come to the fore  in the  midst of the fullness and vibrancy of daily life.
