Men's Dharma Weekend — Entering the Flow of Receptivity, Generosity and Gratitude

Men’s Dharma Weekend —
Entering the Flow of Receptivity, Generosity and Gratitude
Aug. 9, 6pm to Aug 11, 2:30pm

With the duties, responsibilities and obligations that life brings, it’s important that we take the time to slow down and realize how interconnected we are with the world and all that inhabits it.

Being receptive to others' generosity can give rise to gratitude, which can lead to entering the flow towards a more peaceful, and contented existence. Developing our own capacity for generosity can enhance receptivity and gratitude. Our connection to the Sangha can help support our journey to awakening these attributes.  

Join us for a weekend exploration where we take a deep dive into the flow we experience between "getting" and "giving".  Meditation, talks, exercises, lively discussions, a fire ceremony, periods of stillness and silence, and time to connect one on one, will help explore questions such as:  

Am I spiritually receptive?  
How do I mindfully bring generosity, gratitude and receptivity into the world in my daily life?  
How does gratitude and open-handed generosity increase our spiritual receptivity?
How do we practice gratitude on and off the meditation cushion? 
What is true open-handed generosity? 

This weekend of meditation, Dharma talks, group discussions, ritual practices and stillness is an opportunity to let go of our habitual routines and connect with a community of like-minded Dharma explorers. 

This retreat is residential and meals/housing are included in the price. Please see the note below about donations for teachers.  You can access helpful information about attending retreats at Aryaloka here.

A Culture of Generosity and Support
In the tradition of passing on the Dharma freely, our Dharma retreat and workshop facilitators offer their work without charge and are not paid. We recognize the value in what they do and want to thank them for their time, energy and wisdom. A financial gift can help support our facilitators to afford them the opportunity to lead. Please consider making a donation towards their support. There is often a cash collection and a thank you card that is passed on the retreat, though one can also make a donation directly to facilitators with a check, and some use money transfer services such as PayPal or Venmo. Thank you for your generosity.

At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. 

The Event Rate is our actual fee for the event. It is for people paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford occasional or regular leisure expenses such as dining out. Any payment above the advertised fee is a tax-deductible donation. 

The Mid-Level Reduced Rate is for those who are paying their mortgage or rent, though experience a consistent tightness in budget that makes extras like leisure activities or unexpected expenses difficult or impossible. 

The Base-Level Reduced Rate is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. 

Those whose circumstances are not included above can email the office to make other arrangements.
