“There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.” – Rumi

In this silent retreat we will stabilize attention and deepen concentration through the breath and body, then gradually open our awareness to the boundless space of mind and heart. These practices will help us relax into freedom from our habitual thoughts and patterns and find equanimity in our present moment experience.

Led by meditation teacher Lisa Ernst, this retreat is suitable for newer as well as more experienced meditators. The retreat will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, instructions and dharma talk

Cost: $50, plus dana (generosity donation) to the teacher. Retreat fee is due by August 22. A reduced fee spot is available in the case of financial need. A deposit of $50 can be paid by Paypal here. If paying by check, instructions are at this link. Be sure and include your email address. Directions and additional information will be emailed prior to the retreat.

This dharma talk was inspired by a woman named Marta Beckett who was a professionally trained ballet dancer in New York City. When her car broke down in Death Valley she saw an abandoned old theater and listened to the call of her heart and renovated it. She danced there many years with little to no audience until she was discovered. In the talk I explore how we can devote ourselves fully to our path with love and commitment, rather than seeking results, even when the terrain seems barren. In this way, we open to greater possibilities as unexpected and wonderful surprises often appear along the way.

One Dharma has incurred some significant expenses related to the move. We are paying double rent for part of July as our lease doesn’t officially end at the dharma center until July 31. In addition, we have purchased 15 new sets of zafus and zabutons. As all three of the dharma center groups will be meeting in separate spaces, we had to split up the inventory of cushions at the dharma center. The new zafus and zabutons cost $110 a set, $1650 total. We need to raise funds to cover these added expenses and I hope you can help. If you would like to donate the cost of one (or more sets) of zafus and zabutons that would help a great deal. If the cost of a set is beyond your budget, any amount you can offer will be greatly appreciated and will help toward ensuring we have adequate funds. Here is the cost breakdown for our move:

15 zafus at $40 each = $600
15 zabutons at $70 each = $1050
extra rent for new location in July: $300

Total moving cost: $1,950

You can donate by cash, check or credit card. You can donate by paypal here. To pay by check, please bring it to one of our meetings or email ernst.lisa@gmail.com for where to send it (we’ll be opening a p.o. box). One Dharma is a non-profit organization and your donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for supporting One Dharma!

Taking Flightcrop

In this half day workshop we will explore in-depth Buddhist teachings of self and no-self. We will learn how meditation can help us identify and befriend our many “selves” while also touching the ineffable freedom of the unconditioned heart and mind. By seeing through the endless flux of identity, we come to rest in compassion, kindness and clarity.

The workshop will include instruction, experiential practice and discussion. Cost is $40 and can be paid by paypal here. Instructions for paying by check are at this link.
Please include your email address. Scholarships are available, inquire at onedharmaretreat@gmail.com.
