About the retreat program:
A message from Chuck:
We have the method; the practice is to bring the method to Life!
We must fill in the blanks with our own experience, use what we feel in this moment, adjusting the practice to our present condition. And we must do this for a lifetime.
Together we can explore how to gather the wisdom that enables us to trust our inner voice. We can learn to let that inner voice guide us through the ever-changing Sea of Samsara. Halahala! Into the Sea of Amrita Bindhu! The “Nectar of Immortality!” The transformation from Moha to Shantieh . . . Peace!
Why not! If we can loosen our grip on our current Beliefs, “empty our cups” and show up ready to learn, we can do it! Little by Little!
** This is a two-week retreat, but for those students who cannot commit to two full weeks, there is a one-week option.
