‘Going for Refuge’ at Bodhi Path
It’s not too late to join the Mission Street Buddhist Center’s new two-year program of long weekend immersions to fully explore the path of awakening – in fact, the entire program is geared toward entering the curriculum at any time. “Going for Refuge – A Journey Toward Trust and Immutable Confidence,” which takes place 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday, February 22-23, is the second workshop in the series following January’s overview weekend, and launches into the first steps on the path of awakening that include learning how to go for refuge in the “Three Jewels”: the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. Santa Barbara Bodhi Path Buddhist Center’s resident teacher Dawa Tarchin Phillips will explain what it means to take refuge, and how developing confidence in the awakened qualities of the three jewels is a reliable source of guidance and protection in times of confusion, personal struggle and strife.
