Daylong with Dana Marsh

Ecstatic Awakening:
Going Beyond Hope and Fear

with Dana Marsh

October 9-10

Retreat Description

In this unprecedented time, so many people are experiencing lives filled with hope and fear. We can use skillful methods to deal with our emotions and to transcend our limited ideas.Tibetan Buddhism uses multiple means to meet the needs of varied propensities in the minds of beings. Some of these methods are elaborated while others are completely free of elaboration as expressed in the non-dual teachings, all of which are designed to wake us up to our true nature. Dana Marsh will give participants an opportunity to experience the power of creative visualizations, prayer, mantra, and the liberating power of resting in open awareness. The retreat will include time for group discussion, meditation, and questions.


Friday, October 9, 7 – 8:30 PM (introductory talk, open to the public)
Saturday, October 10: 9 AM – 4:30 PM
