The Power of Giving and Receiving

One-Day Retreat

Join Oren for this daylong retreat on the core practice of dana, generosity, which is at the heart of the Buddhist Path. When we give freely from the heart we feel a natural sense well-being. This experience, when recognized and consciously fostered, lays the groundwork of connection, sensitivity and happiness for the rest of the path to Awakening.

From the rhythm of our breath to the cycle of life, we all live in a flow of giving and receiving. Experiencing this relationship with life can dissolve our sense of alienation, connect us with nature, and open our hearts to a profound sense of gratitude, joy and belonging.

In this daylong we will explore how to deepen our experience of giving and receiving. Through a combination of meditation, silent reflection, movement and interactive activities, we will deepen our understanding and appreciation of this foundation of the Buddhist path.
