Embracing the Wounded Self - The Dharma of Real Life

A series of 8 classes with Robert Beatty starting April 25th.

One aspect of the spiritual journey is the direct realization of our vast nature that is beyond birth/death, attachment and suffering. Profound liberating experiences arise from meditation. These are not the whole story, however, for we come to the journey with an experience of self that has psychological wounds, attachment injury, trauma, loss, social conditioning and deeply held beliefs.

What Are Love and Compassion Really?

A one day retreat with Robert Beatty and Doug Pullin, April 14th 9am to 4:30pm.

We use the word love to mean many things. The spectrum goes from passionate romantic falling in love all the way through loving a restaurant or vacation beach, to selflessly loving a child, to loving all beings. The Buddha taught that love is our true nature, which can be revealed and developed through cultivation.

Half-Day Women's Retreat

Exploring Our Strength, Wisdom and Resilience - March 31, 2018 9:00am - 1:00pm.

It's not easy being human in these emotionally and psychologically fraught times. Being a woman brings its own issues to the full realization of our human and spiritual nature.

This retreat is intended to explore both the barriers we might face and the wide range of gifts that we, as women, can bring to enrich our journey.
