    The Practices of a Bodhisattva

    A Daylong Retreat with Diane Powell


    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.

    The Day will involve sitting and walking mindfulness meditation, guided meditations and reflections, Dharma teachings, an opportunity for questions and answers, silent lunch, some lazy time, and mindful movements. Participants are requested to please respect and appreciate noble silence during the duration of the formal activities of the day. An opportunity for sharing and mindful conversation will be provided towards the end of the day.

    While this event is free and open to all practitioners, it is necessary to register in advance to help with our planning and set-up.  Because many people have expressed a desire to make donations online rather than bringing cash or a check to the Daylong Retreat, we offer several registration options that permit an online donation. However, please understand that you do not need to make an online donation to register and that we welcome any support you may wish to offer in our "dana bowl" at the Daylong Retreat itself. Your generosity in providing a donation or "Dana" for the support of our teacher and Practice Center is greatly appreciated.
