Sometimes we go on retreat. It is very nurturing to step out of our daily routines and "noise" and step into a silent retreat.
This past weekend we were in a Florida Community of Mindfulness silent Retreat held at The Franciscan Center, located on the Hillsborough River in Tampa. Always an amazingly indepth experience, each time I participate, I always say, "this retreat was the most profoundly transformative and nourishing EVER!". Our teacher Fred Eppsteiner gently, yet firmly led us in the actual practice of the Bodhisattva Path.
What is a Bodhisattva?
A bodhisattva is someone who has compassion within himself or herself and who is able to make another person smile or help someone suffer less. Every one of us is capable of this.
