The Buddhist View of Emotions, November 15-17, 2013
“ For aeons, almost everything we think and feel, all our interpretations have been rooted in hope and fear, which in turn, have bound our minds up in turbulent emotions, constraining them to such a degree that we no longer have any control over them. That is why, according to the shravakayana teachings, we need to tame the mind, or from the bodhisattvayana point of view train it to become useful, or from the vajrayana perspective recognize mind.”
From Not for Happiness by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
Join us for a weekend meditation retreat on the forested shores of Daisy Lake at Sea to Sky Retreat Centre. The goal of this retreat is to deepen our understanding of our emotions. We will examine how they are generated and how they are maintained. We’ll make use of traditional Buddhist methods designed to transform emotions from a source of bewilderment into a source of insight and creativity. This retreat will include shamatha, vipasyana and tonglen meditation and guidance.
The retreat at Sea to Sky Retreat Centre will be led by Bruce Ashton, a practice instructor of Siddhartha’s Intent and a senior student of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Bruce is also authorized by Rinpoche as a Dharma Das instructor.
