Deerhaven 2017 First Night

by Peter Carlson on March 2, 2017

During this talk, Peter reviewed the traditional “3 Refuges” and “Five Precepts” practices at the beginning of retreats, then suggested a more contemporary rendering of the Refuges, followed by a handout with the Precepts rendered as commitments.  Participants were also given a “certificate” dedication: “May The Merits Of This Practice Benefit Everyone I Meet”.  This was followed by discussion regarding how to make best use of the retreat experience to follow over the next 6 days.

Here are files for the certificate and commitment handouts:  To Cultivate More Clear Awareness and Benevolent Intention  scanned merits slogan
