The Six Perfections; San Diego / Zoom – Michael Gregory
August 23 @ 7:00 pm - August 25 @ 4:30 pm
Join us in for this special weekend retreat on awakening compassionately to the heart of your true and expansive nature offered by Generosity- Donation Only. This retreat offers a blueprint to path and purpose, illuminating the Buddha's beautiful path of transcendence over suffering and destructive emotions, and awakening life's process to one of perfect enlightenment! This retreat will be instructed by Michael Gregory, former Buddhist Monk and Director of Mindfulness Meditation Centers.
Transformational, heart opening teachings and rare and precious practices will be offered on the Buddhist teachings of Loving Kindness, The Six Perfections and Non Duality.
The Six Perfections are practiced by those who have the supreme intention of attaining enlightenment for the sake of others. These six are 'perfections' because they give rise to complete enlightenment.
Michael will break down the teachings conveniently into practical and modern terms, while never letting us forget that the point of all Dharma is nothing other than insight into the mind and heart.
Guided meditations and rare and specific practices and teachings will be given in this retreat, offering a complete guide to transformation of unconscious habitual patterns into enlightenment through the practice of the six perfections.
Benefits of Practice:
Generosity leads to the enjoyment of ample resources, ethical discipline gives a good rebirth, patience leads to an attractive appearance and supportive companions, enthusiastic effort endows the ability to complete what is undertaken, fostering concentration makes the mind invulnerable to distraction, and wisdom discriminates between what needs to be cultivated and what must be discarded and leads to greater wisdom in the future.
Practice of the 6 Perfections insures the attainment of an excellent body and mind in the future and even more favorable conditions for effective practice than those we enjoy at present.
This weekend will also intersperse fundamental meditation practices, with ample time reserved for questions and answers.
Discover how the loving practice and experience of generosity, ethical discipline, patience, enthusiastic effort, concentration, and wisdom can lead to inner awakening.
