Cultivating and Experiencing Joy
Saturday, November 20, 2021 - 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
A Full Day Retreat, with Half Day Option
With Chas DiCapua
The Buddha spoke of worldly joy and unworldly joy. We will explore unworldly joy such as the joy of being present, the joy of wholesome mental states, and the joy of being in Sangha. Experiencing for ourselves the role joy plays in the unfolding of the Noble Eightfold Path. We will explore the various places in the practice that joy arises so that we can become more mindful of it, and therefore strengthen this lovely mind state. The sitting and walking meditations on this retreat will be a bit more guided and structured to support the understanding and experiencing of joy.
