Intuitive approach to how things exist
with Ven. René Feusi
Sunday, June 19, 2016
2:00pm – 6:00pm
Exploring how things exist is central to the Buddhist spiritual path, as our mistaken apprehension of phenomena is seen as the root cause of our problems.
There are many methods used to convince us that something is wrong in our perception.
Some are more intellectual, while others are more intuitive.
This afternoon we will explore together some similes that give us an intuition on how things exist and think about how those could be used in everyday life.
Ordained by the Dalai Lama more than thirty years ago, Swiss monk René Feusi has studied with some of the greatest scholars and inspiring lamas in the Tibetan diaspora. He has also performed numerous extensive retreats, including a two-and-a-half-year seclusion focused on developing mental stability. He has led large Buddhist events in Europe, Asia, and North America, and he has students worldwide. The resident teacher at Vajrapani Institute in the Santa Cruz mountains from 2001 to 2007, he now splits his time equally between teaching and retreat. He lives in Tonasket, WA. He has recently published The Beautiful Way of Life: A Meditation on Shantideva's Bodhisattva Path.
