Day-Long Dharmata Retreat:
“Unbounded Love and Compassion:
Going Beyond Words and Ideas”
Lama David Curtis
Saturday, March 25th
10:00 am – 4:30 pm
About the Retreat
Dedicating ourselves to the highest welfare of beings, as demonstrated by masters of the past, may seem well beyond the grasp of us ordinary beings. Yet, this is the solution to the enmity being demonstrated by world leaders, corporations, and in our own hearts. As our natural state is love and compassion we need only uncover these qualities in ourselves to make significant change. Dedicating ourselves to the highest welfare of all beings is brought about through skillful practices and dedication. We can connect with the heart of spiritual altruism, going beyond the idea of enemy and friend, embracing all circumstances of this life starting right where we are here and now.
The Dharmata Sangha is offering this daylong retreat free of charge, while inviting participants to give generously when considering their dana to the teachers. All Buddha Dharma teachings are offered freely, and dana (a voluntary, anonymous donation of no specified amount) is the customary practice of supporting Dharma teachers’ dedication and respecting their needs of livelihood.
Please register by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
