    (June 26-July 2, 2017)

    In this culminating chapter Shantideva (c. 8th century CE) presents, through the meticulous philosophical analysis of the Madhyamaka School, the way to overcome confusion, which is at the root of all dissatisfactions in life. Without wisdom, reliable progress can't be made. Awakening, the ultimate goal of Buddhist practice, is only attainable through wisdom, the unmistaken nondual discernment of reality. All other virtuous practices such as generosity or meditation are auxiliaries to wisdom.

    Retreat will be facilitated by Dharma Teacher Tsony.
