Since the time of the Buddha, up to the present day, chanting has been used to preserve and pass on the teachings and express devotion to the Triple Gem (Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha). While chanting these ancient truths, we engage body, heart and mind, encouraging uplift and opening in these three dimensions of our lives. Joy, the fourth of the Seven Factors of Awakening, arises as a natural result of this practice.
Through cultivating all seven factors – mindfulness, investigation, energy, joy, tranquility, stability, and equanimity – we transform old habits that limit our growth, accessing a greater freedom and setting the wheel of awakening rolling.
This program will include chanting, meditation, and study of the seven factors of awakening.
Noble silence will be observed following each evening session through breakfast the following morning. Additional silent practice periods will be scheduled throughout the program.
Suitable for beginning and experienced practitioners.
