Description

In this nonresidential online weekend retreat, we will explore how and why we conceptually impose internal and external boundaries upon a world that is naturally boundary free. Each time we draw a line of demarcation internally (my body, my mind, my persona) or externally (others, the external world, nature) we establish a narrowing definition of ourselves while increasing our psychic distance from others. We believe we gain control by establishing boundaries but are usually unaware of how it restrains and limits our freedom.

Join Rodney on this two-day exploration of boundaries, which will also explore the sanity of setting healthy personal boundaries and establishing principled ethical limits. The weekend will include dharma talks, silent and guided meditations, Q & A sessions, and Qigong with Ellen.
