We Are Nature: Exploring the Body Through the Four Elements

Dawn Mauricio

Dawn Mauricio

We are often led to falsely believe that there is nature and then there is us, as though we aren’t all intrinsically linked and the same. The Dhamma is here to remind us otherwise. This half-day retreat will explore mindfulness of the body through the four elements to remind us that we are nature. This is not about sitting in silence as the world burns—it’s about tuning into the fact that if the earth is on fire, so are we, and letting that wake up the heart and inspire action.

This Is How Civilizations Heal: The Alchemy of the Three Poisons

The three poisons—greed, aversion, and delusion—are mind states that cloud the heart and mind. However, by clearly recognizing the three poisons, we can meet them with their antidotes of generosity, mettā, and wisdom. Generosity expands our ability to feel connected and reminds us that we belong to each other. Mettā opens the heart, protecting us from both inner and outer harm, while wisdom allows us to see things right sized as we move through the world.

The Beauty of the Dhamma: Celebrating the Goodness of the Path

In the Buddha’s discourses, the Dhamma is often called kalyāṇa, or “beautiful.” During this daylong, we'll dive deep into the beautiful qualities of practice: how meditation brings us closer to truth, goodness, inspiration, and love. Our time will include guided meditation, walking and movement practice, reflections on the teachings, and group discussion. Join us for a celebration of the goodness of the path as we continue to walk each other home. Open for beginning and seasoned meditators alike.
