Basic Buddhism: Conquering Fear

With John Henderson

May 29 - 31, 2020

A DHARMAKAYA CENTER RETREAT

Every day we are assaulted by fears—about our health, our nation, our planet, and most of all, ourselves and our place in world. These fears can be paralyzing—or can fuel opportunities for growth as you operate from a center of core calm. Learn how the dharma can help, in this weekend program of teachings, discussion, and guided meditations.

This is Part 3 of our four-part Basic Buddhism series; programs may be taken individually or as a group. The other programs are:

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Fear generates a host of negative emotions, from anger and outrage to bitterness and jealousy. Yet, negative emotions can be also very good teachers—opportunities to notice what upsets you, to uproot it and to grow. Come explore these negative emotions we all wrestle with, including what causes them and how to master them through simple awareness.

Over the course of the weekend, through teachings, discussion and simple guided meditations we will explore the whys and hows of these emotions:

  • Learn the evolutionary basis and neurological effects of negative emotions
  • Explore ways to delve into the heart of your negative emotions
  • Understand how to use negative emotions to your benefit
  • Discover how to harness meditation and mindfulness to better manage these emotions

When not in class, relax in the Center’s beautiful and tranquil environment. Enjoy the view from the patio or a nearby hike, curl up with a book in the library or contemplate the stars while sitting by the fire pit. You are always welcome to join the regularly scheduled Center activities, including the Center’s Sunday study program.

EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Intimate setting with personal access to the teacher
  • Interactive sessions with question and answer periods
  • Personal and guided meditations
  • Delicious all-vegetarian meals with locally sourced ingredients
  • Option to extend stay on Personal Retreat
  • Extensive library of dharma books
  • Expansive wooded grounds with beautiful flora and fauna
