Becoming Congruent; an Online Retreat
Sunday, April 25, 2021 - 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
(with Half Day option)
With Chas DiCapua
The Buddha taught that the cause of suffering is craving. Craving for things to be different than they are. More of this, less of that. Hang on to this, get rid of that. Because we live in a world where things change, and do so out of our control, the demanding that things be a certain way can only lead to stress, agitation, and frustration.
Luckily there is a way out of this cycle of suffering, and that is by learning to be patient, tolerant and equanamous with the way things are. When we can be congruent with how things are, there is a lack of resistance, and therefore a lack of suffering.
During this retreat we will practice Citta Nupassana or mindfulness of mind. Noticing what is arising at any given moment, and more importantly, noticing how we are relating to it. With reactivity or with equanimity? The idea is to see for ourselves, in our own experience, that resistance to what is present is a suffering state, and being accepting of what is present is a non-suffering state.
Once you have registered for this offering, you will be sent a confirmation email, along with the Zoom link.
There is a half day option for this retreat that will run from 9am-1:30pm. You may register below for this.
