Just what does the phrase "let go" mean? Renunciation (nekkhama in Pali), one of the ten perfections, is often thought of as sacrifice, as something we should do because it's "good for us" though not particularly uplifting. Actually, the Buddha spoke of this quality as leading to true contentment and happiness.

During this day, which includes periods of silent sitting and walking meditation, we will explore the theme of how renunciation is related to joy. We will discuss:
* What letting go means
* How letting go leads to simplicity and balance
* How letting go manifests as the perfection of generosity.
* Practices will be offered to work with letting go in our daily life.

Fee: $20 - $60 (sliding scale)
