Cultivating a Meaningful Life
A Daylong Retreat with
Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni
Saturday Nov 14, 2015
9:30am – 4pm
The Buddha taught that the key to peace, joy and happiness is release: a state of mind and heart not driven by a relentless insistence that life, in this moment, be other than it is. This capacity for freedom is available to each of us in every moment but it is often obscured by our agitated minds and our wounded hearts. In this day long retreat will combine the steady focused attention of meditation and application of right effort to make choices that lead to joy and meaning.
This day long retreat will be comprised of silent and guided meditation, body awareness exercises, Dharma reflections and group discussions and is suitable for both new and experienced meditators.
This class is by donation, or dana, only. The dana will be divided evenly among the teacher and ATS. Please CLICK HERE for information on the tradition of dana.
We would like to know how many will attend the daylong, so please take a moment to RSVP HERE. Thank you.
Bring a lunch for yourself and something to share with Amma. In the Buddhist Monastic tradition Amma depends completely on alms food and noon is her main meal.
Please come fragrance free so that those with chemical sensitivities may join.
Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni blends rigor with gentle loving encouragement to find your own way – finding a balance between fierce holding of the Dhamma and compassion, tenderness and empowerment. She founded Awakening Truth whose mission is to eventually create a Bhikkhuni training monastery and Dharma Village. She is based in Colorado Springs. Visit www.awakeningtruth.org for more info.
