The Dharma of Interconnection
Compassionate Awareness & Action in an Age of Global Uncertainty
A Daylong Retreat with Deborah Eden Tull
Sunday April 19, 2015
9:30am – 4:30pm
This is a unique retreat interweaving the teachings of Engaged Buddhism and The Work That Reconnects, a process for transforming our grief, denial, anger, and despair about the social and ecological challenges of our time. How we treat ourselves and how we treat our world are one in the same. In every moment, we are either coming from the mind of separation or the reality of interconnection.
In this workshop, through meditation, mindful inquiry, and experiential practice, we will learn how to meet the challenges of our time with compassionate awareness as our guide. Through deeper understanding and embodying the interconnection that is the foundation of Buddhist practice, we can meet our pain for the world with wisdom and compassionate action… and in doing so, bring deep healing to our relationships with ourselves, one another, and the world-at-large.
Please wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a journal, pen, and lunch.
Cost: Sliding Scale: $40-$75 and the offering of dana to the teacher. Please click here for information on the tradition of dana. Scholarships and work-study are available. No one is ever turned away for lack of funds.
