Practising Liberation from the Three Poisons
Developing antidotes against the 3 poisons of desire, anger, and ignorance lies at the heart of the great project of Buddhadharma.
But how do we begin working with this energy in our practice, enabling us to transform these poisons in our minds and in our environments wisdom? How do we understand that these poisons are actually important teachers for us?
This retreat will combine simple movement, meditation, contemplation, small group interaction, journaling, as well as structured and guided dialogue to help us break through the barriers that prevent authentic and intimate dialogue and interaction with others.
This retreat is suitable for people that are willing to engage with issues of marginalisation, racism and patriarchy and would like to explore these issues in the context of Dharma practice.
