By Tuere Sala, Visiting Teacher
Often, we talk about our everyday difficulties as the problems and limitations to awakening. We wait until we are able to go on retreat to surrender and connect to a deeper stillness only to lose connection with it within days, or sometimes hours, after leaving the retreat center. In reality, we do not awaken outside of our difficulties nor in spite of them. We awaken within the difficulties and challenges of our everyday life experiences.
What if the difficulties you go through in life had a nobler purpose? What would your practice look like if you knew you could only find liberation within the naturally arising causes and conditions of an ordinary life?
During this evening talk, Tuere will share how the Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha can capture our lives and turn a simple meditation practice into a driving force for awakening the mind and cultivating kindness in all things.
Please join Tuere for a meditation and Dharma talk on THURSDAY, February 13, 7pm.
Blog posts are written by various IPV and guest teachers. Biographies can be found on the Teachers page.
