Setting Your Compass

Teachings by Devon and Craig Hase

 

Saturday, April 28 │10 am – noon and 2 – 4 pm           

 

Why do you practice? What brings you back to meditation day after day? Do you believe the Dharma can awaken you from the dream-like illusion of mental and emotional suffering? And how can you motivate yourself to continue deepening into this ancient and ever-evolving stance toward human life?

 

Using the unfolding of experience as our root text, and the preliminary practices of the Kagyu lineage as guide, Devon and Craig Hase will lead retreatants through a day of opening to what is, and through this, discovering our innermost motivations.

Suggested donation: $60 for the day. No pre-registration is required.  Please visit www.kscashland.org for more information.

Soup Supper will be available at mid-day break for a $10 donation to the Scholarship Fund. Please contact: scholarship@kscashland.com for more information or to volunteer.

Bodhisattva Celebration

Bodhisattva Celebration │Sunday, April 15, 11 – 11:30 am

A bodhisattva is one who vows never to abandon beings and aspires to bring benefit to all. Today, KSC’s Dharma Kids and the sangha celebrate that spirit in our world, and also as the heart of our own tradition to lift suffering. Storytelling and songs will be enjoyed and all are encouraged to attend and contribute.

Introduction to Heart Sutra

Introduction to Heart Sutra

The Perfection of Wisdom teachings of the Buddha appear in extremely concise form in the Heart Sutra, which  is both a meditation practice and a contemplation of the subtle and fundamental way in which things exist. Understanding this genuine level of reality brings the opportunity to understand the power of our confused emotions, as well as their causes and imprints. From understanding, it is possible to gain gradual freedom from the tyranny of manipulative emotions. One’s native capacity of wisdom -- the knowledge which sees everything accurately -- is revealed and strengthened, and one is freed to act with skill in all situations.

The lamas will introduce the principles and history of the Heart Sutra during this day of study. A copy of the sutra in meditation form will be provided as the basis of study, and will be practiced together by the end of the day.

Saturday, March 24 │ 10:00 a.m.-noon and 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. 

Suggested donation for the day: $40, plus dana for the teaching.

Soup Supper will be available at mid-day break for a $10 donation to the Scholarship Fund. Please contact: scholarship@kscashland.com for more information or to volunteer.

Letter from Lamas, Summer 2017

We continue to reflect on last autumn’s Visioning Circle with joy and wonder. The combination of high attendance and quality of thoughtful responses has added a dimension of guidance for us as we consider how the future might look for KSC. We are grateful for all who contributed and look forward to continuing these circles annually into the future. We have taken our time to fashion a response, and hope that you will take your time reading this letter, so we may share a clear sense of moving together into the future. Read More . . .
