Retreat Dharma Talks at Spirit Rock Meditation Center

Being Dharma

Ajahn Chah encouraged the study, practice, understanding and realization of the Dharma in order to 'Be the Dharma'. What does this mean and what are the implications for our life and actualizing our realization in the world?

This retreat will explore Being Dharma as a graduated unfolding reality and as an ever present authenticity. We will contemplate the four foundations of mindfulness experientially as we sit, walk, eat and in all activities. The structure of the retreat includes group and individual meetings with the teachers, daily meditation instructions and dharma talks. Each day will also include devotional practices that explore the Bodhisattva Heart.

We have a tendency to fixate on things through attaching and resisting. By knowing deeply the impermanent nature and relaxing our grip, we come into a wise relationship with the conditions of our life and open to the way things really are.
