Cultivating a Boundless Mind - Saturday, September 22
with Ayya Anandabodhi, Ayya Santacitta & Isabelita Papa

The qualities of benevolence, compassion, appreciative joy, and equanimity are a profound and beautiful aspect of the Buddha’s teaching, known as the Brahma Viharas or the Four Immeasurables. Through meditation practice and qi gong, we will develop these qualities, transforming our perceived limitations, and opening ourselves to states of freedom and generosity. The dana from this day retreat goes 100% to the Saranaloka Foundation which supports the Aloka Vihara nuns.  Learn more >
