Relating to Ourselves and Others with the Hearth of a Buddha

Galilee Centre, 398 John Street North

$390 – $490

Co-Teacher: Jean Esther  When we go on retreat and dive into silence and inner awareness we have the opportunity to recognize and release the habits of mind that limit our freedom and peace. Possibly the most challenging and important arena into which we bring our practice of mindfulness is relationships. While we may want to respond to our intimate relations, colleagues, friends and neighbors with authenticity and an open heart, relationships are often the context in which old reactive patterns are triggered. In this retreat Daryl Lynn Ross and Jean Esther will explore how to be intimate with ourselves, and authentic and compassionate in how we relate with others. The retreat schedule will include sessions of mindful speaking and interaction as well as times of silence, all engaged in with a spirit of kindness. Sitting and walking meditation, teachings, mindful movement and discussions about practice will round out the retreat schedule. This retreat is open to all, and is not specifically designed for couples. Couples and individuals of all sexual and gender orientations are welcome.  Please note: we ask that couples not share a room together.   Registration Information ARRIVAL TIME: 3:30-5:30 pm, Thursday, August 9. The retreat will conclude by lunch on Sunday, August 12. Everyone is welcome to stay for lunch. COST: TNI is dedicated to offering affordable rates to all. TNI retreat fees are on a sliding scale basis that allows participants to pay according to individual means. Fees do not include compensation for the teachings, and teachers rely on the generosity of retreatants for a sustainable income. There is an opportunity to offer dana (donations) to the teachers at the end of each retreat. The deposit is included in all of our fees. Sliding Scale:              $390 – $440 - $490 Deposit:                      $195

$505 – $640

The Four Noble Truths are the core of the Buddha’s teaching. They are a plan of action to release the stress, anxiety, and tension in the mind, heart, and body. The teachings approach this in a non-conventional way. We are not trying to change anything, but are learning to be with life as it unfolds. We use the calm, peace and well-being that come from meditation as a springboard for greater insight into our life and our true nature. Insight is the doorway to wisdom and...

Buddhist moral teachings are not a list of do's and don'ts that we are supposed to follow. They are guidelines and practices that develop inner discernment to help us live with integrity and kindness. At the heart of the matter is a commitment to minimize the harm we cause in the world and to support life. Morality, along with wisdom and meditation is an essential element of the Buddhist Path. To have integrity in our thoughts, speech and actions supports the love, insight and...
