Retreat with Lama Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel
Burning in love in a world we can not fix
At the Mevlana Garden Retreat Center, Ibiraquera (SC)
October 12 and 13, 2019
The practice of awakening the heart (bodhicitta) is not a religious endeavor, but a first-person exploration of what is possible as we begin to unfold our greatest human potential by moving from our habituated and fixed mindsets to a deeper understanding of the interdependence of all things.
This practice provides direct and practical means to directly address some basic human issues: How can we become habituated in keeping our hearts permanently open? How do we respond to the suffering we encounter in the world without being overwhelmed or trying to solve it rigidly? What is the difference between repairing and healing?
Bodhicitta also teaches us how to make an aspiration, how to work with difficult situations, how to deepen our perception through meditation and how to develop genuine altruism.
We will try to include as many people as possible.
