The Sure Heart's Release

“All experience is preceded by mind, led by mind, made by mind."

Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 2 & 3, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm, with lunch break

In this retreat, we reflect on this verse from one of the most liberating texts of the Buddha’s words, the Dhammapada. The awakening of the Buddha is an invitation to embody wisdom and freedom in our own lives. Practicing together, we will draw upon three traditions -- the heart of Zen, the spirit of Tibetan Buddhism and the essence of Theravada -- to illuminate this invitation.

Led by:

Trudy Goodman, Founding Teacher, InsightLA

Anam Thubten, founder and spiritual advisor of Dharmata Foundation

Norman Zoketsu Fischer, founder and spiritual director of the Everyday Zen Foundation
