Coming Together to Begin Anew

The Honey Locust Sangha

Spring Retreat

Thursday, May 12 – Sunday, May 15

Creighton University Retreat Center

Although the Beginning Anew practice is usually used to prevent misunderstandings in relationships, or to support and maintain happy relationships, or to heal hurting relationships, in this retreat we’ll use the 4 part practice to look within ourselves.

Thay says, “Beginning Anew is to change your mind and heart, to transform the ignorance that brought about wrong actions of body, speech, and mind, and to help you cultivate your mind of love.”

That’s our focus for this retreat: Using the Beginning Anew practice to renew, refresh and restore our personal practice; to explore how we can change our mind and heart, how we can transform our ignorance and cultivate a mind of love.
