Forgiveness and Reconciliation
A Vipassana retreat with Sayadaw U Thuzana
Palolo Zen Center, Honolulu, HI
January 22 - 30, 2016
The Buddha succeeded in establishing a community that has been a genuine force for peace and harmony, not only because of the high value he placed on these qualities but also because of the precise instructions he gave on how to achieve them through forgiveness and reconciliation. Central to these instructions is his insight that forgiveness is one thing, reconciliation is something else.
Sayadaw U Thuzana will teach the difference between the two as we practice forgiveness and learn how to reconcile in this seven-day mindfulness meditation retreat that is suitable to anyone who is interested in or has already been practicing Buddhist meditation.
The Abbot of Tathagata Meditation Center (TMC) in San Jose, Sayadaw U Thuzana has been a monk for 30 years and speaks fluent English. Before coming to TMC in May 2011, he was the chief meditation master at Malaysian Buddhist Meditation Center (MBMC) in Penang, Malaysia from 2003-2010. Sayadaw is a great teacher and is wonderful to be with.
