“For the cessation of sufering, eight things are given the meditator.
It is called the eight fold path, as a sequential breakdown. But, in
reality, [these eight] occur IN A SINGLE MOMENT on the occasion
of the path.” -Visudhimagga XVI.75
Nibbana (total freedom from suffering) is uncreated, not arousable by the path. Yet it
is reachable by the path! This retreat will focus on Nibbana as the object of
meditation; to actually experience the path’s wisdom as it neutralizes the inherent
mental imperfections that block our ability to be happy.
to its cessation, he cannot recognize the truth—and he cannot be free from suffering. But,Nibbana is
existent and apprehendable here and now by the right means. We can abide in a state of joy that the world
cannot give and cannot take away. This retreat is open to spiritual practitioners of any level or any
religious practice, particularly Judeo-Christian as we will recognize the complementary nature of Buddha’s
delineation of “the Way.” Come with an attitude of confidence that real contentment and happiness is
attainable by emergence of one’s own wisdom, regardless of external conditions. It just depends upon how
one sees the “world.”
