Birth, Life, and Death in the Cosmic Cycle

“It is in this life that a person is born to eternal life...In this life all things are one.”

- Meister Eckhart

THIS RETREAT HAS A WAITING LIST.  You may register but do not submit a payment as you will be placed on a waiting list.

Why do so many people fear death?  How can we liberate this fear?  What dies?  What lives forever?  The Universe story, Zen teachings, and the Dominican mystic Meister Eckhart will help  us explore these questions.

Transforming a fear of dying is possible right here, right now, in the midst of suffering.  Because we are not separate, our personal awakening liberates this fear for others as well. This retreat day will include presentation, dialogue, and meditative practices.  We will have time for silence, creative expression and ritual.

Saturday, February 24, 2018
Cost of $45 includes $10 non-refundable deposit and the noon meal.

Paula Hirschboeck is the guiding teacher and priest for Sophia Zen Women's Sangha in Madison and Southeastern Wisconsin.  She teaches Soto Zen Buddhism in the context of the cosmological powers as presented by Brian Swimme.  Instruction in useful practices for humanity's awakening is built into the interfaith outreach of her ministry.  She includes the non-dual wisdom of the West's Sophia teachings in her teaching and retreats.  Paula is a retired Professor of Philosophy from Edgewood College in Madison and was a member of the Sinsinawa Dominicans for many years.
