The Art of Reading the Pali Discourses Today: A Daylong Retreat with Brian Lesage

September 23 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

The Pali Discourses (Suttas) are the primary texts in Theravada Buddhism, and 2,600 years later these teachings are still relevant.

During this residency we will explore how to go beyond the words, reading the Suttas critically and sympathetically, so they become relevant to our lives, personally and socially. We will then incorporate this learning into our spiritual practice.

There is no fee to participate. The practice of Dana (generosity) lies at the heart of Buddhism, reflecting a deep understanding of interconnection and freedom from craving. A teacher offers the teachings; those who are present offer support for the teacher’s efforts, and for the sangha which provides opportunities for yogis to learn and practice. In this way, generosity strengthens relationship and reciprocity. We welcome donations at events and through the “donate” page on our website. Thank you!
