AWAKENED HEART: Integrating Wisdom and Compassion** with Chris Crotty
Saturday, September 23, 12:30-4pm ~ Wisdom, represented by clarity and understanding, is half of the Buddhist path. The other half is compassion, the ability to relate to our whole life with care. In this half-day retreat, we will explore how wisdom and compassion can be integrated and nurtured together, through periods of sitting and walking meditation, and silence. This retreat offers an opportunity to develop an understanding of how to bring our whole life into our meditation practice, and how we can bring our meditation out into the world. $35 plus dana for the teacher ~ please preregister here
