Freedom in the Flow — Practicing with the building blocks of our human experience

When we are unaware of the fluidity of all life experience it’s easy to get caught. We find ourselves trying to hold on to the experiences we identify with as me and mine. The teachings on the Aggregates, or skhandhas, help to open our eyes to the ever-changing flow of human experience. When we see the truth of this we gain freedom from grasping and clinging. We are more in tune with how things really are. This half day retreat will offer teachings, discussion, and time for meditation and reflection on the Five Aggregates, the building blocks of all human experience.

Registration is preferred. To register please email Susan.ezequelle@gmail.com. Please indicate in the email whether you wish to attend in person or on-line.
