This 3-day (Aug 14th-16th, 2020) online practice retreat led by Erric Solomon will be a mix of teaching and experiential exercises based on Radically Happy: A User’s Guide to the Mind, which Erric co-wrote with Phakchok Rinpoche.
When asked about the retreat, Erric explained:
“By learning how to care for ourselves, as we learn to care for others, a profound joy arises —through cultivating loving-kindness, compassion and empathy. First we need to base our endeavor on a healthy sense of self, free from anxiety and self-denigration. Next, our actions are informed by the interconnected nature of reality. In this way, we meet the dynamic, intensity of daily life head-on and heart-open.”
Erric will teach and lead experiential exercises twice a day from 9:30-11am EDT (21.30 Singapore, 20.30 Bangkok, 15.30 Berlin) and again from 12:30-2pm EDT (0.30 Singapore, 23.30 Bangkok, 18.30 Berlin) via Zoom Webinar. Each session and each day of the retreat will build upon the earlier material, and we will make recordings of the previous day’s teachings available in associated Samye forum as quickly as possible so that participants from all over the world, and diverse timezones, will have the opportunity to catch up with any teachings or exercises they missed before the next day’s sessions.
