Venue: Hosted by Martin Ryan

This one day workshop will be an opportunity to explore spiritual friendship through a mix of silent meditation, dharma contemplation and some small group discussion and dyad practice.

“Friends create an important context for any individual’s Buddhist practice. Hopefully, friendship shows that we don’t just practice for ourselves. We also practice with and for our friends, community and others. Friendships also teach us that the fruits of practice are not something we keep for ourselves. They are something that we share. We can be good friends to others. As we become freer we are thereby granting greater freedom to others, at least in terms of liberating them from having to contend with our greed, hatred, and prejudices. Mindfulness, love, and the path of practice can be the channels through which we have meaningful relationships with others. And meaningful relationships, in turn, support us on the path to greater mindfulness, love and awakening.”
Friendship on the Path, by Gil Fronsdal
