The "Heart Sutra" is one of the most famous and revered of the Buddha's teachings. This profound teaching on Emptiness is revealed through a dialogue between two of the Buddha's main disciples, Avalokiteshvara and Shariputra. It contains the very essence of all the Buddha's teachings. By understanding the meaning of Emptiness, or how things actually exist in our world, instead of how we usually perceive them, we can learn to let go of harmful, negative emotions and cultivate our marvelous potential for clarity and contentment of mind and deepen our compassion as well as the many other qualities that are innate within us. Reciting the "Heart Sutra" is often recommended by the lamas for gaining wisdom and removing obstacles in our lives. The retreat will be lead by Venerable Robina. Hailing from Australia, she has been an ordained Buddhist nun since the 1970's. She has served as the Editorial Director of Wisdom Publications and "Mandala Magazine" and currently teaches Buddhism around the world. The retreat begins at 4pm on January 11 and ends at 1:30 on January 18

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
