Menla • REAL LIFE • Virtual Retreat with Bob Thurman

March 18 - March 20

When we’re threatened or afraid, we contract, we close in, we reinforce separateness yet feel increasingly lonely. Expansion, by contrast, means a more spacious, open sense of possibility, creativity, lovingkindness, connection and joy. Join Sharon and Robert Thurman for an online weekend retreat exploring Real Life: Wisdom and Compassion in Action.

In this all levels online retreat, through discourse, dialogue, and meditation exercises, we’ll explore changing the dynamics that have us feeling most contracted (even if they are socially sanctioned, like greed) and abiding more in the space that expansion enables. This is a genuine possibility, not something merely theoretical or abstract. In Buddhist teaching this journey can be described as: moving from craving/endless searching to peace, moving from aversion to compassion, moving from delusion to vibrancy and connection. This is journeying to a life of authenticity, wisdom and compassion. Compared to our ordinary existence, it can be called real life. Hosted Live Online via Zoom with HD Re-Plays Provided.
