Online Weekend Retreat via Zoom

About The Event

This is the fourth of our four-part series exploring the insight dimension of the Brahma Viharas. We will build upon what we practiced in the first two weekends on Metta and Karuna, and apply it toward an experiential understanding of Upekkha (Equanimity).  There will be talks and guided practices that foster a heart-centered understanding of our interconnectivity with all that is. We ask all attendees to clear their schedules so they can participate in the retreat fully for the entire weekend.

Led by Padmadharini and Vimalasara

Open to all GFR Mitras and Dharmacharinis in the US and Canada. This is the fourth of four standalone retreats covering all of the Brahma Viharas. You are welcome to sign up for this weekend by itself. You do not have to have attended Parts 1, 2 or 3 on Metta, Karuna and Mudita.

This event is open to women * who have requested ordination with the Triratna Buddhist Order, and Dharmacharinis.

*The Triratna Buddhist movement has a long, rich history of offering women-only practice spaces. At the same time, we welcome participation from a diversity of gender identities, including trans women and those who identify as non-binary. We ask all participants to be open to this broader definition of a women-centered space. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at alokasetu@gmail.com.
