The cultivation of the virtuous skills of wisdom and compassion – respectively, the depth and breadth of Buddhist practice – is a hallmark of the tradition. The complex yet beautiful blend of these two skills manifests in an attitude of “loving all beings even though we know they are ultimately empty of their own independent existence.”
Our retreat, led by Professor David Gardiner, will explore how the Buddhist tradition lays out ways to effectively engage these two forces together.
This retreat is open to anyone, whether new to Buddhism or experienced.
