Introduction to the Eastern Wisdom Traditions

Introduction to the Eastern Wisdom Traditions is a retreat series lead by Dr. Haridas Heitz. The wisdom traditions of the East have a long and fruitful history, leading millions on the path of realizing unity with the divine. In this series of five classes, we will begin our own path to understand, appreciate and practice the ways of three traditions: Daoism, Hinduism and Buddhism. We will begin on June 19th with an orientation to the differences between these traditions and the Western ways of perceiving the world and ourselves, differences that are essential to truly understand Eastern wisdom. In our second class on June 26th, we will learn about the nature of the thinking mind and why we must transcend it if we wish to realize who we are at the deepest level. These two classes will serve as our foundation for understanding the traditions of Daoism, Hinduism and Buddhism (classes 3-5). Our aim will be to not only gain knowledge about these traditions but to also practice their ways and learn how to incorporate these ways into our daily lives.
