Topic: Awakening the Heart: Transformation Through Loving Kindness
“First, I should apply myself to meditation
On the equality of self and others.
Because we are all equal in wanting to experience happiness and avoid suffering,
I should cherish all beings as I do myself.”-Shantideva
In this annual weekend away retreat, we will emphasize cultivation the precious mind of affectionate love, the foundational realization at the heart of the Mahayana Buddhist path to enlightenment. Through training in these special meditations, we will increasingly feel very close, warm and happy towards others, thereby experiencing joyful and loving minds throughout our daily life.
Our retreat will take place at the Arrowhead Ranch in Lake Arrowhead. Nestled in the stunningly beautiful and majestic mountains of the San Bernardino National Forest, “The Alps of Southern California”, Lake Arrowhead offers an ideal, picturesque setting for meditation retreat. Within the beauty of nature – the striking scenery, wildlife, and fresh air of the mountains – find peace and meaning on this joyful and tranquil weekend retreat. (About a 90 minute drive from Los Angeles.)
