Not Two:  Making Our Whole Lives The Path of the Spiritual Warrior

A Course in Spirituality One-Day Retreat

Saturday April 8, 2017

"When we are truly ready to transform our lives we enter into a sacred space somewhere between the past and the future, filled with infinite possibilities, immeasurable opportunities never available to us until now.  The transformation has begun, but can only be sustained with diligence, perseverance, and skillfulness; an arduous lifelong journey back to the very place we began, back to who we truly are."  - Seijaku Roshi

 

In this retreat we will begin by exploring the Four Noble Truths.  We will examine the Nature of our Discontentment; the Causes for our Discontentment, and the Tools for Transforming our Discontentment.
