Few would dispute that our world is in crucial need of greater wisdom, compassion and courage, not only from our leaders but also from each of us as we live our daily lives. This retreat explores the traditional Buddhist approach to developing these qualities through taming what are known as the “three poisons” of passion, aggression and ignorance. We will explore key Buddhist teachings and practices related to causing no harm, caring for others, and seeing the goodness in ourselves and others. In so doing, we come to discover that we all have within us, as our deepest and truest nature, exactly what the world needs now.


This program will include meditation, group discussions, contemplation and talks by the teacher.
