“It is quite important to be sure within oneself whether one is really leading a moral life or just respecting the prejudices of the group within which one happens to be.” (Sangharakshita)

We will explore the relationship between our actions, our speech and our minds, and what it means for us to take on the ten precepts at ordination. We also will experience the practice of confession and how that helps us unfold to our greater potential.

Study Preparation:
We will be studying 2 main texts: Living Ethically and The Ten Pillars, by Sangharakshita.
Another book you may find useful as background reading is Not About Being Good by Subhadramati. We would also like you to read the paper Revering and Relying on the Dharma.

* At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.

* Retreat participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.
