The Buddha was called ‘the Happy One.’ His teachings and practices provide an inspiring vision of our human potential to experience the highest happiness. They remind us that many of our culture’s promises of what brings happiness actually block our way to the source of real joy. This weekend of Insight Meditation will follow the Buddha’s way of Mindfulness, Concentration and Love, illuminating how each of us, through a gradual process of recognizing and cultivating our natural awareness, can move from clinging and attachment to letting go and freedom, from confusion to clarity, and from tension to ease. The Buddha said, If it was not possible to do this I would not ask you to. Come and see for yourself. The retreat will include instructions in sitting and walking meditation along with opportunities for new and experienced meditators to dialogue with the teacher about their practice.
