Carrying the Lamp of Our Ancestors' Wisdom and Heart: A Time of Healing and Creating Legacies - Annual People of Color (POC) Retreat

The richness of our histories, with equal parts of brilliance and suffering, joys and sorrows, sheds a light on our abilities to plant and sow the seeds of resilience. The qualities of loving awareness, compassion, and equanimity develop within us the capacity to embody the truth of our inheritance and reframe our future, steeped in the wisdom of the Buddhadharma. Practices of noble silence, as well as stationary, walking and movement meditation will allow us to ripen the possibility of living into the words, “We Are Our Ancestors’ Wildest Dreams.”
