Guided Meditation and Dharma Talk
Every Thursday at 6pm

Come out this Thursday to practice mindfulness and meditation with us! We are led by a Buddhist nun this week. Relax, calm down, and concentrate. Then, start to develop insight into your own nature and attempt to examine reality free from biased limitations. Can you spend 75 minutes away from your phone? Tea served afterwards.

This is a great opportunity for a one week retreat 3/11-3/19 in California or a longer immersion program, and a rare chance to live within a full monastery and really combine deep theoretical study with experiencing Dharma practice firsthand.

The first week of the program (March 11-18) will be a Guan Yin retreat led by Doug Powers (bio), who will be going over the "Ten Grounds Chapter" (shidi pin 十地品) in the Avatamsaka Sutra, a pivotal text on how to walk the Bodhisattva Path.

The following two weeks will be a chance to study the Six Paramitas--generosity, virtue, patience, vigor, concentration, and wisdom--while engaging in the daily practices of the monastery. We will also be reading the life stories of modern Buddhist practitioners to see the paramitas embodied in a lifetime of practice.

Note: Undergraduate or graduate students who cannot make the whole 3 weeks are welcome to apply for just the first week. The Guan Yin Retreat (3/11 - 3/19) is also open to anyone, does not have to be a student.
