Purifying our perceptions will be the topic at this non-residential weekend retreat held at Show Me Dharma on July 8th-10th.
Bob will use the commentary by Bhante Gunaratana, the founding abbot of the Bhavana Society in West Virginia (author of many books including Mindfulness in Plain English) as the basis for his retreat dharma talks.
The Buddha stressed the importance of purifying our perception in the Girimananda Sutta in which he taught ten healing practices to purify perception and practice mindfulness. How we perceive ourselves and the world can make a big difference in our quest for peace and freedom. Our perceptions are easily distorted, which often leads to suffering. Purification of perceptions is a path to freedom and peace.
Please join us as we explore perception.
