Teachings from the 2018 Fall Retreat
Day 1 Dharma Talk - " What is keeping you from Happiness?" -
In this 63-minute talk, Dharmacarya Tony Silvestre opens with this powerful question. His talk, the first since his stroke in 2016, was vintage Tony - simple, reflective, powerful. Dharma Teacher Chan Huy continues with the Discourse on Happiness as it speaks to our daily lives.
Day 2 Dharma Talk - " Crystal Clear Diamond Sutra"
in this 65 - minute talk, Chan Huy continued with the Discourse on Happiness, looking deeply at each answer the Buddha had given to the question, "Tathagata, please tell us, What are the greatest blessings that bring about a peaceful and a happy life?"

A Delightful Surprise: Retreat Attendee, Doug Daegele, brought along his hammer dulcimer, and accompanied the Sangha singing a version of the Metta Sutra to the tune of Amazing Grace.
