Wisdom and Love: An Exploration of the Six Elements and the Four Brahmaviharas a weekend retreat with Ayya Anandabodhi

September 11 @ 9:00 am - September 12 @ 4:30 pm

During our weekend together, we will be exploring the six elements- earth, water, fire, air, space, and consciousness. This is a wisdom practice that is both simple and profound, leading to direct insight into impermanence and not-self. Not forgetting the importance of love, we will also be weaving the four heart qualities of benevolence (metta), compassion (karuna), alturistic joy (mudita), and equanimity (upekka) into our practice. I hope you will join me on this journey of discovery and letting go.

This will be a zoom retreat.

Information about our teacher Ayya Anandabodhi

Ayya Anandabodhi first encountered the Buddha’s teachings in her early teens, igniting a deep interest in the Buddha’s Path of Awakening. She lived and trained as a nun in the Forest Tradition at Amaravati and Chithurst monasteries in England from 1992 until 2009, when she moved to the US to help establish Aloka Vihara, a training monastery for women.

Her practice and teaching are guided by early Buddhist scriptures and through nature’s pure and immediate Dhamma. In 2011 she took full Bhikkhuni Ordination, joining the growing number of women who are reclaiming this path given by the Buddha.
