February Residency With Brian Lesage
PLAYING WITH PERCEPTION: A WAY TO FREEDOM
The Buddha’s teachings leading to freedom can be summed up as practices that train us to perceive our experience in different ways. Through perceiving our experience in these different ways, we are gradually freed from the limiting habits that constrict our hearts and minds. A function of play is to practice new ways of experiencing the world. During this residency, we will playfully explore classical ways of perceiving our experience and explore how they lead to freedom that is relevant to our daily lives. This offering will include retreat time and weeknight discussions. This residency is open to both beginning and experienced practitioners.
The format of the residency will be as follows:
February 10 - February 28, 2021
Wednesday, February 10, 6:30 – 7:45pm Introductory talk
Saturday, February 13th - Sunday, February 14th 9:00am - 3:00pm both days
