Awakening the Legend of Maitreya Buddha: A Retreat of Mindfulness in the Tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh With Dr. Larry Ward
What does it mean to practice love, compassion and wisdom in these times? We explore America’s legacy of racial promise and dysfunction from the perspectives of Buddhist Psychology and neuroscience.
We will enjoy noble silence, sitting meditation, walking meditation, total relaxation, eating meditation, a dharma talk and community sharing. This is an opportunity to discover and enrich our embodiment of the future Buddha present within us now. Our collective and individual awakening is calling. Whatever our preoccupations or distractions it is urgent to rouse the cave of our hearts to this highest of callings.
This retreat is presented by and for people of color—Black, Asian, Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, Multi-racial—to share and practice in a supportive environment.
Peggy Rowe will lead a group for spouses, partners, children and allies who are not People of Color but who are attending with their beloved.
