Under the Bodhi Tree: Weathering the Onslaughts of Maras On an earth-shaking full moon night in May, according to Buddhist tradition, the Great Awakening occurred under the Bodhi Tree. A number of Dhammas came to fruition, including the bodhisatta's cultivation of mindfulness with breathing, deep inquiry into the nature of dukkha, and the realization of dependent co-arising, which culminated in full release from clinging to "me" and "mine." Coincidentally, some Japanese traditions celebrate these momentous developments in November. On this…

Though our world is more connected than ever in some ways, we still experience a connection deficit with ourselves and others. We can retreat into a sense of helplessness, anger, or despair in the face of the suffering we witness, feeling overwhelmed. Yet a connected heart is not anxious in the face of suffering. A connected heart is wise and flexible, reverent and open. A connected heart is a relationship to life. This retreat will offer you time, space, and…

The Buddha emphasized over and over that it takes effort to follow the path of the Dharma. Yet, the ultimate result is about the nature of ease.

The day will emphasize the simple…

“OK so I had an Insight, maybe it was small, maybe it changed everything for me. Now what?” (By the way, everyone has insights!)

This daylong is designed…
