Year 6 (2017-2018) Theme: Quenching the Thirst for Wholeness
Module 1 Theme: What is So Serious Anyway?
Date: Friday, September 1st – Monday September 4th (Labor Day Weekend)
Location: Sevenoaks Retreat Center, Madison, VA
Led by: Erena Bramos
Cost: $690 for the weekend (includes room, meals and program)
In this module we will question our human tendency to take the working of our minds so seriously that we miss out on “Knowing” the true meaning of our lives.
We will explore the suffering we cause ourselves, and others, by any attachment
to believing that we can ever arrive at the end of the journey… that we can
succeed by ‘understanding’ what deserves to be taken seriously and what not.
Please join us for this exploration as we come together in our intention to “lay
down our arms” and surrender to what is real. Together we shall co-create sacred
space within which we can “taste” the Grace that makes it all possible.
To support us in this exploration we will work with the teachings in these
L 128 Limitations Created Through Illusory Alternatives
L 151 Intensity: An Obstacle to Self-Realization
L 163 Mind Activity and Mind Receptivity
L 114 Struggle: Healthy and Unhealthy (Optional)
