A Heart's Awakening
A retreat in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh
with Dharmacharya Leslie Rawls
Southern Dharma Retreat Center, Spring Creek, NC
Registration: http://www.southerndharma.org/retreat_rawls.shtml

This retreat invites our hearts to awaken as the beautiful mountains awaken in the spring. Teachings will focus on the six paramitas, practices of perfection that lead to the shore of understanding. The paramitas invite our hearts to awaken to our great capacities to offer peace and love in a suffering world. Daily practices will be grounded in the Buddha’s teachings on living in the present moment. This silent retreat will include sitting and walking meditation, daily Dharma talks by Leslie, and private practice interviews with the teacher, group outdoor walking meditation, small group sharing, and individual practice and reflection periods. Suitable for new and experienced practitioners.


The 7th Annual Memorial Day weekend retreat
with Dharmacharyas Chan Huy and Leslie Rawls

To support friends' ability to attend the fall monastic tour this fall, the Charlotte and Greensboro Sanghas have decided to cancel this year's Memorial Day Weekend retreat. We look forward to practicing together in other ways, including regional Days of Mindfulness and our regular Sangha practices.
