From Dualism to Understanding
A retreat in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh
with Dharmacharya Leslie Rawls

Southern Dharma Retreat Center, Spring Creek, North Carolina

The Buddha taught that blaming, judging, and comparing minds always cause suffering. We experience this truth regularly through habitually judging ourselves and others in ways that separate us, strengthen ego, and blind us to the truth of Interbeing. In this retreat, we will explore and practice with Buddhist teachings to help us let go of dualistic and discriminative thinking and transform discrimination into understanding. Teachings and practice will focus on the Diamond Sutra. The retreat will offer formal and informal mindfulness meditation periods, daily Dharma talks by the teacher, private practice interviews, small group discussion, and personal practice time to enjoy the stillness and beauty of Southern Dharma.

Registration opens in January 2017. www.southerndharma.org

Suitable for new and experienced practitioners.
