Embodying the Bodhisattva Precepts: The Essential Path of Zen Practice

A Meditation Retreat led by Flint Sparks
with Resident Teacher Suzanne Kilkus

Thursday October 5, 2023 at 7p to Sunday October 8, 2023 to 12p

The Buddha’s primary concern was how to transform unnecessary suffering created by our everyday human attitudes, choices, and behaviors. Rather than responding with moral judgements or declarations about what is good or bad, he offered a mindful practice of inquiry into that which is wholesome and that which is unwholesome.  He urged his followers to investigate how their thoughts, words and actions manifest in their own lives and their consequences in the world, offering the precepts as a guide in this ongoing inquiry and as a map for an awakened life. 

In our fall retreat we will study and practice this path of the Bodhisattva Precepts.
