Spiritual Relief for Flood Victims: Working with Your Enemies

Working with Your Enemies: Finding Freedom from Hostility & Fear
with Sharon Salzberg & Robert Thurman
September 23-25, 2011


Special nearly free one-time rates for local residents in light of the recent devastation brought by Hurricane Irene!  Be sure not to miss this unique opportunity to receive Buddhist teachings from two American masters and gain tools to deal with the shock, pain, trauma, or depression that many in our local community are dealing with.

An enemy, whether within (in the shape of a habitual, painful mind state) or without (as someone for whom we steadily feel antipathy or fear) marks the edge between limited lovingkindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity, and the potential boundlessness of these qualities. We will explore inner and outer enemies, look at the fear, anger, and anguish generated by being stuck in a mode of "us" and "them", and focus on the liberation we are all capable of. There will be periods of dialogue, discourse, question and answer, and guided meditation practice.

Menla is offering local residents a chance to attend this retreat for very little money. If you want to eat meals at Menla, we need to charge you for the cost of meals, but tuition is by optional donation only (suggested donation of $5-$10 per class). You are of course welcome to bring your own meals or eat in Phoenicia during the meal breaks. Please be sure to register ahead of time, and if you want to register for the meal plan, please do so no later than 5pm Wednesday September 21.

Sharon Salzberg is cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre, Massachusetts. She is one of America's leading spiritual teachers and authors, has authored numerous books, and has been a student of Buddhism since 1971.

Robert Thurman is Professor of Indo-Tibetan Studies at Columbia University, President of Tibet House U.S., a popular lecturer on Buddhism, the translator of many philosophical treatises and sutras, and author of numerous books.
