Event description

Description

Buddhist practice is ultimately about transcending suffering (dukkha) - but in order to transcend dukkha, we must first accept and understand it. During this retreat, Ayya Soma will lead us through an investigation of stress and suffering, and how we can befriend dukkha by seeing it as impermanent and impersonal.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Ayya Soma is a Buddhist monk ordained in the Theravāda tradition. As the co-founder of Buddhist Insights, a non-profit organization connecting people with monastics, she has learned the Dharma through the perspective of monks and nuns of all different traditions, and incorporates aspects from all of them in her own practice. Her spiritual path is inspired by the social engagement of her preceptor, Venerable Paññāvati Bhikkhuni; by the knowledge and wisdom of Ven. Robina Courtin; and by the compassion of Khenmo Drolma.
