Living with an undefended heart with Mary Stavancage
3 November 2018 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
“If you let go a little you a will have a little peace; if you let go a lot you will have a lot of peace; if you let go completely you will have complete peace. ”
― Ajahn Chah
Many of us come to practice with defenses around our heart that we’re not aware of. We long for connection but find ourselves pushing others away when that’s the last thing we ever wanted. The teachings of the Buddha offer a path where we can learn to sit with ourselves and welcome our deepest fears while also melting the armor we’ve built up over the years. We can learn to let go into freedom.
Come spend a day in reflection and meditation on what keeps you defended and how best to move forward towards peace. Suitable for all levels of practitioner.
