Insight Meditation with Keri Pederson





Saturday, July 14th, 2018- 9:00 am to 4:30 pm

Cultivating Wise Intention

  The Buddha recognized intention as a powerful factor that inclines and shapes the mind itself. In this retreat, we will look at how we can understand and cultivate the aspects of wise intention that the Buddha identified as leading us towards freedom.
