A Journey Inward: Exploring the Five Faculties

Saturday, June 1 @ 9:00 am - Sunday, June 2 @ 4:00 pm

This journey towards inward awakening asks more of us than force of will. It is a gradual unfolding of understanding and equanimity. The engine behind this gradual unfolding are the five faculties. The five faculties are faith (or conviction), energy, mindfulness, concentration and wisdom. Together they gradually turn the wheel of dharma. Faith/conviction strengthens energy; energy strengthens mindfulness; mindfulness strengthens concentration and concentration strengthens wisdom and vice versa. These five faculties are natural activities of mind that move us along the path. This retreat will focus on learning how to cultivate these faculties and recognize their impact upon our practice. Both new and experienced meditators are warmly welcome.
