Dharma & Yoga Retreat
With Carolyn Christie, Robert AF Thurman, Sharon Salzberg and Brooke Myers
December 27, 2016 - January 1, 2017
Mind, said Buddha, is the key to both happiness and unhappiness. The untrained mind, only partially conscious, is often a victim of itself. During much of our waking life, we are not actually aware of what our minds are doing. All kinds of negative inclinations are continually being reinforced and we act because of thoughts of which we are only marginally aware. The Buddha taught mindfulness to counter this tendency, to wake us up from mindlessness, and to help us move forward to live with the enormous capacity we have as human beings for wisdom and compassion.
This workshop will explore, discuss and make possible an experience of a more true happiness, one infused with reality, wakefulness, wisdom and compassion, as we begin the new year. In addition to Buddhist teachings and meditation, Carolyn and Brooke will offer two Iyengar Yoga classes each day. There’ll be two levels of classes, beginner and intermediate. Join these wonderful teachers in setting intentions for and ringing in 2017!
Prices starting at, $1,050 for a 6 day, 5 night stay.
