Event description

Description

Living with mindfulness of death does the opposite of what one might expect: instead of fear and sadness, it cultivates peace, acceptance, compassion, and a drive to live your life in a way that is the most beneficial to you and to others, for as long as you have left. Come spend the weekend with Bhante J facing your fear of death - and discovering the freedom that lies beyond that fear.

This retreat will include periods of meditation, interspersed with lectures, and mindful eating of organic homemade meals.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Bhikkhu Jayasāra (“Bhante J”) is an American Buddhist monastic who currently resides at Bhavana Society of West Virginia. He was born in 1978 and raised Catholic. He started practicing meditation in 2005 and officially took refuge and precepts to become a practicing Buddhist lay disciple on Vesak in 2008. In 2011 he took the Eight Lifetime Precepts with Bhante Gunaratana and was given the name Jayantha. He moved to Bhavana Society in September 2014, became an Anagarika (postulant) in March 2015, became a Sāmaṇera (novice monk) in October of 2015, and a Bhikkhu (fully ordained monk) in October 2016.
