Navigating Your True Heart

Women’s Ordination Training Retreat: The Brahma Viharas
“The cultivated emotions of the Brahma Viharas pass through the fires of sunyata, or emptiness – that is non-self or non-duality – thus giving rise to the bodhicitta, or wisdom heart.”
-Sangharakshita, Living with Kindness

The Brahma Viharas help us discover and cultivate our ‘true heart’ as we transform our negative tendencies into Love, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity. On this retreat we will deepen our experience of the four meditation practices – metta bhavana, karuna bhavana, mudita bhavana and upekkha bhavana – through meditation, reflection, presentations, related activities, devotion and silence. Our meditative and reflective journey will be held within the Mandala of the Five Buddhas whose transcendental wisdoms radiate with the highest emotions.

Please arrive for start of retreat before 7 pm.

* 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.
