About the Retreat: The Buddha’s teachings compare the practice of the Dharma to a bird in flight, needing two wings. These two wings are compassion and wisdom. In this weekend retreat, we will work to bring an open-hearted and compassionate awareness to both the joyful and the challenging aspects of our experience, and as we do this, our innate wisdom begins to see with clarity the true nature of our lives. The retreat will consist of alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, with practice instructions. There will be opportunities for question and answer sessions, and individual discussions with the retreat leader.
