Taking Refuge: Turning Toward, Not Away

Dec 10th 10:00 am - 4:30 pm


A workshop with Chris Fortin and Susan Moon
Sunday, December 10, 2017

Refuge is the opposite of turning away. As we take deep refuge in
ourselves, in our practice, and in each other, we become more fully
present for whatever comes up. We can more fully engage with the
suffering of the world. We ourselves can BE refuge.

In this day of sitting and walking, writing, listening and speaking,
we will not just use wise-sounding dharma words. We will turn our
minds to the millions in this world, far and near, who are refugees.
We will use this day of making, finding, and giving refuge to support
ourselves, and to carry this support forward to others.
