The Buddha clearly laid out a map for us to follow in order to clear and brighten our mind and strengthen our compassionate heart. As a pathway, he identified five spiritual powers that are accessible to all of us once we uncover the mental patterning that gets in the way of developing these qualities. This weekend, we will learn to identify the five powers and identify the five mental and physical patterns that interfere with having access. We will practise being mindful of these patterns when they arise and learn to let go while we engage in sitting and walking meditation, as well as discussions together. Unless we have tools for how to work with these difficult patterns, they can hinder our spiritual unfolding. This weekend is sure to be a support for your daily meditation practice and will bring more trust, ease and joy into your daily life.
Everyone is welcome to participate.
