Join us this Sunday at10:00 am MST for a a special Dharma discussion with guest teacher, David Leonard! David has practiced and taught meditation for over 50 years, after receiving teacher training in Sri Lanka where he was a monk for three and a half years. His teacher, Venerable Sumatipala Nayaka Thera, was a highly esteemed student of The Mahasi Sayadaw of Burma. He trained under Venerable Nanaponika Thera in the canonical and philosophical aspects of Buddhism, and received meditation teacher training under his teacher and Venerable Pemasiri. David has done over eight years of deep retreat, and maintains an extensive daily practice. His intuitive approach to practice is uniquely suited to western minds, and he has been influential in the training of some well known western teachers.

GROUP RETREAT – Using Wisdom to Open the Heart with Arinna Weisman (sponsored by the Tucson Community Meditation Center)
DATES: This retreat has been moved to an online format – see here for more info
LOCATION: Dharma Treasure Retreat Center
CONTACT: MELANIE KNAPP
We have the special possibility this weekend as community to support each other to awaken in love, wisdom and the other qualities of the heart that dissolve our doubt and confusion. By walking the Buddha’s path together we give and receive the greatest of blessings: spiritual friendship.
This residential retreat will be held in the container of silence with a time for group inquiry and individual interviews each day. There will be guided meditations in mindfulness and loving kindness, and dharma talks.
As a gathering, we will be supported to become conscious of the diversity in the room as well as the larger communities of which we are a part.
