Mississippi - Weekend Retreat on Compassion

  • Flowering Lotus Retreat center 204 South Clark Street Magnolia, Mississippi US (map)

During this silent retreat we will explore how the Buddha's teachings offer a path to inner peace, freedom and the compassionate heart. Awareness as developed through mindfulness practice and love (Metta) are the essential ingredients to any spiritual life. Awareness leads to clarity, insight and understanding. Love opens the heart, allows a kind embrace of ourselves and connects us intimately with all of life. The fusion of love and mindfulness supports a compassionate response to the pain that we encounter in ourselves and in life.  In this retreat of meditation practice we will discover how these qualities are intimately related and mutually supportive and why they are necessary in any journey of awakening in learning to live wisely and kindly in the world. This retreat will include comprehensive meditation instruction for sitting and walking meditation, as well as talks, group discussions and mindful movement. Suitable for beginning and experienced students.
