The Eight Awareness of the Buddha

5-Day Retreat Led by Genpo Roshi

Tuesday October 11 - Saturday October 15, 2022 on Zoom

The Eight Awarenesses is among the final teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, the mature, ripened fruit of his lifetime of practice and teaching.  Also known as the Eight Awarenesses of the Awakened Mind, or of Enlightened Beings, they offer a profound and at the same time down-to-earth perspective on all his earlier teaching, and an accessible guide to living the life of an awakened human being.

This is the first retreat of the 2022-2023 Four Yana Program, devoted this year to Mahayana Buddhism.  For more about the Mahayana year's events and readings, click here. In addition to being part of the Four-Year Program, this retreat is open to all others who wish to attend.
