The Practice of Awakening
One Dharma Meditation Retreat, November 7 – 9
Penuel Ridge Retreat Center
The path of Buddhism offers us a unique opportunity to awaken to our inherent wisdom, compassion, and open heartedness. Over time our perception of awakening can change from the conceptual and distant to our direct experience of this moment. During this retreat, we will have an extended opportunity to awaken our hearts and minds to our true nature in this moment.
The retreat will be facilitated by Lisa Ernst and Tom Neilson, with contributions from Kurt Brobeck and Patsy Cutillo. The schedule will consist of silent meditation, walking practice, dharma talks, one on one interviews as needed and adjunct practices to enhance the retreat experience. The retreat will be held at Penuel Ridge Retreat Center near Ashland City, TN. We will be begin Friday at 5:30 a.m. and conclude at noon on Sunday with lunch and refreshments.
