During this talk, Peter described the traditional Three Refuges: Buddha, Dharma and Sangha from a contemporary perspective, as a commitment to cultivating the Path to Awakening. This included a contemporary view of the Five Precepts as well. These commitments are meant to provide an orientation to the intensive daily practice for a retreat, in this case lasting one week. The Dharma talks and notes for the retreat will be posted daily for the next week in the sequence of the retreat.
Here are the notes prepared for this talk: Opening Night Talk
