Shin Buddhist Retreat/Workshop
Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, Barre, MA
July 31- August 2, 2015
What is it to be a complete human being? Who am I? How can I live? What is my spiritual potential? These are the questions that will be explored in this retreat experience.
This annual and unique retreat/workshop will take place on July 31 -August 2 in Barre, Ma, from Friday 7:30 p.m. – Sunday 2 p.m. It is not a BFF of CT/NEIBS sponsored event but we highly recommend this experience to anyone interested in learning about Shin, a school of Buddhism for ordinary working people.
This retreat will explore the deeper dimensions of Shin Buddhism and looks into how the Shin teachings may be applied in everyday life. Also, it surveys Shin’s larger philosophical and cultural contexts, taking up the core issues, dissolving dualistic boundaries, and ultimately assists the participants in realizing the oneness of reality (Pure Land).
There is minimum sitting meditation, some chanting, and memorable and profound discussions that will make you think about the meaning of life and connect with it and everyone at the retreat. Depending on where you are karmically, this retreat experience could be a life changer.
If the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies campus’ dorm rooms are full, there are a few nearby B & Bs. BCBS offers a discount if you stay at a B & B.
BCBS offers scholarships.
