Cultivating the Power for Activism

About This Event

Our meditation practice alone cannot not serve as our sole commitment to help end the suffering of others. We have a powerful opportunity to cultivate and develop the prerequisites that enable beneficial acts to be undertaken with intention, attention and skillfulness. The weekend will be a combination of contemplation of sutras from Zen, Theravada and Chan traditions, meditation, Q&A and small group discussion with silence outside of the discussion periods. Thus, through inquiry and self-examination, we will begin penetrating this aspect of our Buddha nature as we embody our true interdependence with everything that surrounds us.

Please don’t let financial issues prevent you from attending a program at the Monastery. If you can’t afford the program fee, there are options.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
