The Practices of a Bodhisattva
A Daylong Retreat with Diane Powell on April 18
Please join us for this Daylong Retreat led by Diane Powell on The Practices of a Bodhisattva. We will focus on the eloquent and insightful poem, The Way of the Bodhisattva, written by the great eighth-century Indian Buddhist, Shantideva. This is a much-loved text that provides a model and guide for living an enlightened life of purpose and meaning. We will use selected verses to deepen our understanding of what it means to live a life of compassion and explore practices for developing our capacity to manifest this wondrous and liberating quality of mind in our life.
Our Daylong retreat will involve sitting and walking meditation, Dharma teachings & discussion, guided meditations, mindful movement and other activities. For your own benefit and the benefit of all, we ask that you plan to remain for the entire day.
While this event is free and open to all practitioners, it is necessary to register in advance. Your generosity in providing a donation or Dana for the use of the facility and the support of FCM is gratefully accepted and encouraged, and can be made online or at the door.
Diane Powell became a student and practitioner of the Dharma after attending a retreat lead by Thich Nhat Hanh in Key West in 1997 and she is grateful for the transformation and life-changing benefits it has brought to her life. As a long-time member of the Florida Community of Mindfulness, she teaches classes on a variety of mindfulness topics, leads Intensives, serves as a mentor to new members, and presents regularly at FCM sanghas. Before retiring, Diane was a faculty member in the Department of Child and Family Studies at the University of South Florida.
