Half-Day: Just This

February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST

Just This: Waking Up to the Truth of Your Own Life

A Half-Day Retreat with Chris Crotty

The causes of emotional distress and suffering are subtle and hard to see. Ironically, freedom from suffering is not a complicated path: the Buddha taught that learning to be with our experience just as it is provides the only real opportunity for release. Despite this, it’s easy to fall into the habit of using meditation to get away from certain experiences or to try and fix our life, compromising our ability to experience the present moment directly.  This half-day retreat will explore the Buddha’s teachings about suffering and the end of suffering through periods of mindfulness meditation, a dharma talk, and an opportunity for sharing.

Beginners and experienced practitioners welcome.
