Discovering the Buddha Within You

March 10th, 2018 ~ James Baraz & Carley Hauck – Discovering the Buddha Within You

When we say, “I take refuge in the Buddha,” we acknowledge that within us is the seed of wisdom and goodness that flowers as the awakened heart. In order to help this seed fully blossom, we need to embrace to all parts of ourselves, including those aspects that are difficult to accept. Then we can access the clarity and kindness that is our true nature. We find courage to live authentically as we learn to hear that voice of truth within. In doing so, we learn to express our gifts, show up fully and make a positive impact in the world.

This daylong will use periods of silent time, journaling, embodied movement, and role-playing to access the Buddha inside and express it clearly with more confidence and power.

  • To make a fool of someone
  • To justify our behavior
