This program has been cancelled. Discover ways to experience your home, workplace, and community as sacred places that can serve as allies on your life journey. During this retreat, we will practice exercises at the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya allowing us to feel the archetypal elements of holy sites and helping us to learn ways of finding peace, healing, and inspiration within the buildings we inhabit each day. Through guided visualizations, we will sense the connections between the buildings sheltering us and our patterns of thought, speech, and action. We will also learn ways of arranging furnishings, selecting colors, and choosing materials to foster inner and outer harmony, health, and happiness. Through increasing awareness of the inter-being of nature, humans, and physical structures, we can experience our physical world as a living, breathing place and engage our living spaces as vessels for spiritual awakening.
