SEPTEMBER 17-19  CHANGE, CHAOS AND CONTENTMENT RESIDENTIAL RETREAT AT THE CHRISTINE CENTER 

The Buddha often talked about impermanence, that everything is constantly changing.  We know the good times don’t last and our bodies don’t either.  However the bad times also don’t last and because of impermanence we can grow and change.  Appreciation and gratitude, love and compassion, along with wisdom help us develop contentment in spite of the chaos.

This program explores the ideas and methods found in Buddhism that can lead to experiencing more satisfaction and contentment in life.  It includes talks and  discussion.  There will be sitting, walking, and guided meditation with detailed meditation instruction so that you leave with everything you need to establish a daily meditation practice.  Hearing about contentment is good.  Experiencing it through hearing, contemplation, and meditation is better.
