“We live in a vivid and precise field of causality with infinite other beings.”   Ethan Nichtern, IDP Founder & Senior Teacher 

One of the central concepts in Buddhism is interdependence -- the idea that all things depend upon many causes and conditions and cannot be separated from one another.  As humans, we rely upon countless others, as well as the environment, for our basic needs and our very existence, yet we cling to the illusion of being independent and alone.   Meditation practices allow us to see through this fundamental delusion, and realize our interconnectness with, and responsibility to, all beings.

IDP Weekend retreats are a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in the practices and teachings of the Buddhist tradition in the support of a group environment.  The focus for this retreat is Interdependent Co-arising and Interbeing as discussed in Thich Nhat Hanh's book, The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching; it will include talks and practice instruction, in-depth meditation, short yoga breaks, and discussion.

This practice-based retreat will take place Friday 7-9pm, Saturday 10am-6pm, and Sunday 10am-1:30pm, leaving students with ample time to relax and integrate the practice on Sunday afternoon.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you are unable to attend the entire weekend, you may enroll for portions of it.  Contact Kim@theidproject.org for registration details.

Yoga will be led by IDP instructor Kim Stetz.  These breaks are approximately 10-15 minutes long, and are designed to provide support for sitting meditation practice. No prior knowledge of yoga is required.

There will be lunch breaks on Saturday and Sunday, but lunch will not be provided. Participants should bring a bag lunch or take advantage of the diverse eateries available in the neighborhood.

Waking Up to Interdependence

While independence is a very difficult and important developmental stage -- a dramatic step up from dependence, as anyone who has teens and two-year-olds will tell you -- it is not the ultimate goal of maturity.Dorothy W. Baker
