Retreat Description

Gratitude and Joy: An Exploration of Mudita

As the world starts to come out of the pandemic and all the suffering of the past year, this spring seems like a good time to shift our inner gears as well.  While we may be familiar with the practices of lovingkindness and compassion, the third divine abiding of appreciative joy (mudita) is not as well known.  We’ll take this time to immerse ourselves in the feelings of joy and gratitude, growing our ability to recognize these beautiful qualities in our lives and the lives of others.  Focusing on mudita may be the single most uplifting practice in our Insight tradition.

Teacher Dana: Your registration fee contributes to BCIMS being able to continue to offer retreats such as this. None of your fee goes to Guy.

In the Buddhist tradition, teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless; in the Buddhist tradition we also practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Your generosity is a gift that supports not just the teachers, but also the Sangha, the larger Dharma community, and your own practice.

Voluntary donations (dana) for the teaching may be given to Guy. Information on how to donate is accessible with your confirmation email after registering.
