 If we only studied “the word of the Buddha,”  – the sermons and texts we think he offered during his 50 years of teaching – what would we study

According to Walpola Rahula who wrote “What the Buddha Taught,” we have already studied much of the Buddha’s teachings: Four Noble Truths, Eight-Fold Path, Three Characteristics of Existence, Dependent Origination, Karma.

 But what else did he teach?  That’s what we will begin a study of in this April 2018 retreat.  The Buddhist Attitude of Mind, Meditations (also called Mental Culture), Buddha’s sermons as well as other texts he offered that supplement his basic teachings and stand alone as teachings on their own.  Teachings like the Dhammapada, The Four Foundations of Mindfulness, and The Last Words of the Buddha.

Each night participants will leave the retreat to spend the night at home with a full commitment of no social interaction. Only the main noon meal will be provided on Friday and Saturday and coffee, tea and snacks throughout the retreat.

 

Schedule:

April 19 ~Thursday, 6 – 8:30pm

April 20 & 21 ~ Friday & Saturday, 9:30am – 7 pm

April 22 ~ Sunday, 9:30am – 12:30 pm

 

Cost: Early-bird discount $200 by April 5; $225 thereafter ($25 Savings)
If you have never attended an ASM retreat, you can attend on Friday April 20, 9:30am-7pm for $150.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
