A Pictures Worth a Thousand Words:
Meditations on the Wheel of Life

Saturday June 15| 10:00 - 3:00pm with Modern Buddhism Teacher Kadam Sharon Lovich

We have all heard the phrase ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. 

Contemplating and meditating on the symbolism and deep meaning contained in the Wheel of Life Diagram, an ancient piece of art, is like contemplating a road map pointing us towards liberation and teaching us how to develop the stages of the path to enlightenment. 

In this day retreat we will begin to understand the deeper meaning contained in this diagram and how to use it in meditation to guide us along the path.
