Online Retreat: Radical Acceptance
Exploring the first fetter in the Buddha’s teaching: Personality or Identity View
September 11-13 Weekend: Suggested dana R500
The less personality you carry, the more presence you have.
All practice is towards this – to dissolve the personality and enhance the presence of life in you.
In this online meditation retreat – from Friday evening to Sunday at 4, we will explore some of the ways that we identify with various facets of our experience. We can take our body, our feelings, our perceptions, our thoughts to be who we are. The Buddha called this “I-making, mine-making”. So what happens when we drop this identification and let go of these constructions of our self? How do we relax into a radical acceptance of the sufficiency of pure presence? We will explore these questions in the light of the Buddha’s teaching on untying this first fetter that keeps us bound in a state of agitation. In this deeply uncertain time, through these teachings, we can find a refuge – an island in the midst of the storm.
