THE THREE DOORS OF LIBERATION - The 5th New England Regional Retreat. THIS RETREAT IS FULL Thursday October 24 - Sunday October 27 Hulbert Center, Fairlee, VT Three beloved Dharma teachers in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, Michael Ciborski, Fern Dorrensteyn and Richard Brady will be our guides. They offer this description of the retreat’s theme: We all want to be free, to touch life and all its wonders, in the here and the now. There are entryways into this freedom, doorways that take us past the illusions that block our way. The doorways to freedom are the practices of emptiness, signlessness, and aimlessness.
At this retreat, with the loving support of our teachers and the sangha, we will begin to gain access to these doorways of freedom, so that we can deeply touch the realities of life, and be free from our illusions. Fern and Michael are former Plum Village Monastics and founders of MorningSun Mindfulness Community, in Alstead, New Hampshire. Richard Brady is the founder of the Mindfulness in Education Network. Registration information can be found at the Heart of the Valley Mindfulness Practice Center web page: http://uvmindfulnessmeditation.org
