Spiritual Receptivity Meditation Retreat

by Vessantara

Vessantara leads us on a journey to discover Spiritual Receptivity in this thoroughly engaging set of talks and led meditations. From beginning to end, we get to experience the full flavor of the retreat that these segments were recorded from, held at Adhisthana in 2014. Vessantara deftly weaves Spiritual Receptivity together with the greater mandala of the Triratna System of Practice, bringing in aspects of each of the stages of the system and helping to put receptivity in the context of the spiritual life as a whole.

Talks given at Adhisthana, February 2014
