Weekend Retreat with Carol Blotter

Dependent Origination

 with Carol Blotter

 

Retreat Information

What makes me tick?  Why do I keep getting caught up in behaviors that create so much suffering?  Who am I really?  If there is no self, who is suffering?

If you have wondered about these or other questions around how to break the patterns that cause suffering, then consider joining us for the upcoming retreat on Dependent Origination (also known as the Law of Conditionality).

This important teaching explains the creation of suffering as a looping chain of events that perpetuates craving and the illusion of a self.  During this weekend retreat, we will discern how this dependently originated cycle occurs and how we get stuck in perpetuating the sense of unsatisfactoriness and the illusion of an independent permanent self.  We’ll also explore two ways to break the cycle.

Schedule

Friday evening, 7 – 9 PM
Saturday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Sunday, 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Registration Information

Weekend retreats and workshops at the Dharma Center have a 2-part “cost:”  Because the teachings are considered priceless and are to be supported by Dana (a voluntary, anonymous offering of no specified amount) we ask that you consider making a Dana offering to the teacher, in gratitude and support of the teachings – as best fits your circumstances and brings you joy in giving.

Secondly, we ask a sliding-scale registration fee to cover teacher expenses and the cost of putting on the retreat.  Scholarships are always available and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.

Out of town guests may find this list of resources helpful.
