About the Event

About the retreat

It is often said that for meditation practice to truly take flight, we need the two wings of compassion and wisdom. Wisdom allows us to see things as they truly are and to ultimately understand the nature of reality.  Compassion recognizes the deep interconnection we all share, which allows our hearts to open to the suffering of all sentient beings. Together, the two wings can transform our lives, helping us find deeper ease, equanimity, and compassion that includes ourselves and all beings.

This retreat is suitable for all levels of experience. It will include periods of guided and silent meditation, instructions, dharma talks and group discussion.

Ticket Prices

We ask that you support Flowering Lotus and those whose needs are greater by registering at the highest level ($75, $50, $25) with which you’re comfortable.

All are welcome to participate, regardless of ability to pay. If you  are unable to pay the minimum $25 registration, select “Scholarship”,  and no payment will be required.

There will be an opportunity to make a dana* contribution in any  amount, to Flowering Lotus and the teachers at the online event. Your  generosity is a gift that supports not just the teacher; but also the  Sangha (Flowering Lotus); the larger Dharma community; and, most  importantly, your own practice.

*Dana is a Pali word that is generally translated “generosity.”  We are  taught to practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for  the teachings. Dana is not payment for services rendered – it is given  from the heart. Dana is the first theme in the Buddha’s system of  gradual training and the first of the three grounds for meritorious  action.

Dana contributions (not tax-deductible) to Lisa Ernst may be made to:
