Friendships are the Whole of the Spiritual Life

Ok, for all you “friends are empty forms” people, listen up. I’m going to start publishing a series on the REAL meaning of friendship in Buddhism. Let’e begin with the retreat on friendship by Kate Johnson, hosted by Tricycle. Please click through to Tricycle to engage with her teachings on friendship.

Retreat Schedule:

Mon, 07/06/2015 Friendships Are Part Of The Path 21:20

The Buddha declared spiritual friendship to be the whole of holy life. For many practitioners in the 21st century, however, friendship is relegated to the margins of experience, taking a backseat to work as well as romantic and familial relationships. Join dharma teacher Kate Johnson for an exploration, both on and off the cushion, of the practice of friendship as central in our collective journey toward freedom and wholeness. She will approach friendship not as something fixed, but as a process in which we restore intimacy, loyalty, and generosity to our relationships with all beings, including ourselves.
