Seminar with Reverend Mark Unno – Saturday, September 10, 2011
LIGHT AND DARK, BLINDNESS AND INSIGHT
In this seminar, we will explore the ways in which our lives are buffeted by the storms of blind passion, only to open to the serene waters of compassion. As we face uncertainty, both within and without, we are brought to awareness through the tranquil illumination arising from deep within, like an ocean of light. Borne on the currents of boundless compassion, unexpected insights unfold amidst the creative rhythms of life and death.
