Irigaray meets Nagarjuna: Compassion, Generosity and Possibility

July 22, 2017 to July 29, 2017

A week of meditation, Dharma practice and study
Sudhana Center, Ukiah, California

Led by Bhikshuni Heng Chih and Doug Powers

A deep reflection on a new language of experience meets the transformation of Buddhism to a modern context.
 
Can generosity be a force for releasing fear and anxiety and opening up new possibilities? French feminist philosopher Luce Irigaray and Buddhist master and philosopher Nagarjuna both suggested that entering into unhindered openness and freedom starts from cultivating a ground of generosity. 

In this West meets East exploration, we will immerse ourselves in the six practices of the Bodhisattva path. 

During this seven-day retreat, we will follow a traditional Buddhist monastic lifestyle of meditation, study, and work designed to calm the mind and open the heart.

When:
Evening of July 22 to morning of July 29, 2017.

Program:
We will follow a daily schedule of recitation, seated meditation, sutra study and community work.
