Suggested rate for Teacher’s dana: This is a sliding scale suggestion as to how much to contribute to the teacher.
This year we are including the celebration of Emoyeni’s 21 birthday and Wesak on our annual introduction to Buddhism.
The Buddha’s teachings are extraordinary in that he was able to convey the most profound insights in a way that are so straightforward and direct and easily understood. And yet as we begin to explore these teachings a bit deeper they open us up to a transformation …. We begin to glimpse how a narrow, self-centred way of experiencing the world lies at the heart of our confusion and unhappiness. It prevents us from connecting in an open and compassionate way with ourselves and others. During the retreat we will investigate some key Buddhist insights, and see how they point the way to living with more clarity and friendliness.
