“The Five Great Elements” Retreat:
On Bali, the “island of holy water,” Earth, Wind, Fire, Water and Ether (also known as Akasa or space) are at the core of its myriad spiritual ceremonies. With this backdrop of Hinduism and Bali’s ancient animistic roots, Achariya Doug Duncan and Catherine Pawasarat will lead us through a 10-day retreat focusing on Buddhadharma and the “The Five Great Elements.”
The elements are seen as the origin for understanding suffering and liberation from suffering connected to the chakras, planets, emotions, senses, and ego.
“From the five elements arise the five senses and the five fields of sensory experience, the five negative emotions, the five wisdoms and five extensions of the body; the constituents of every physical, sensual, mental and spiritual phenomenon.”-Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
For those in the Bali area please join us for this journey through emotion & intuition (water), grounding (earth), mobility (air), transformation (fire) and the space in between (ether).
