"We say that the path is the most important element in the Buddha's teaching because the path is what makes the Dhamma available to us as a living experience. Without the path the Dhamma would just be a shell, a collection of doctrines without inner life. Without the path, full deliverance from suffering would become a mere dream." - Bhikkhu Bodhi

This retreat, focused on the reality of life and death, was initially scheduled for February. It was preempted by the passing away of my teacher Ruth Denison. I had the privilege of being present with Ruth through her last breath and cremation. This experience, and the ongoing realizations concerning life-and-death make the importance of this subject even more clear to me.
