Dharma Teacher Fred Eppsteiner

Being an Island Unto Oneself: The Path of Unshakeable Refuge

Three-day Retreat | October 2010

Thich Nhat Hanh has written, “When he was eighty, the Buddha knew that he was going to pass away in a few months, and he knew that his disciples were going to miss him. During the last six months, around the city of Vaisali, he used to talk to the monks and the nuns about taking refuge within yourself. The expression is atadipa. Ata means self, dipa means island. When you go back to that island, you experience peace and stability. The Buddha is there, the Dharma is there, and the Sangha is there.”

During this three-day silent residential retreat in Tampa, Dharma teacher Fred Eppsteiner focused on the Buddhist teachings and meditation practices related to establishing within oneself an island of conscious awareness, awakened intelligence, emotional maturity, and all-embracing compassion and kindness.
