Embracing Compassion with Keith Rowan
Sep 21 @ 6:00 pm – Sep 28 @ 2:00 pm
This one week intensive meditation retreat at the Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre will be an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the meaning of compassion and to develop it more and more within ourselves.
This development is specific yet universal, not vague or shallow. Whether viewed from the point of view of our day to day experience or from an analysis of the nature of existence, compassion is central. The Dalai Lama has said, “If you want others to be happy, practise compassion. If you yourself want to be happy, practise compassion.”
Keith Rowan is a life-long student of the dharma. “As a practitioner I definitely fall short but I have had the good fortune to receive valuable, authentic instruction from some great teachers and practitioners. Passing on their insights and wisdom as clearly as possible is my greatest pleasure.”
The Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre is a wonderful meditation centre in the wooded hills South West of Nelson. Quiet and secluded and designed specifically for retreat work it is the perfect place for this kind of exploration.
