Seven-day Retreat with Bob Dattola
August 11 - August 18
Bob Dattola will give talks and be available for private meetings and the daily afternoon group dialogue in this summer retreat. Bob has been taking part in the Center’s work since its inception. Important questions for him over the years have been “What is Truth or Reality?” and “Where can Truth be found?” In addition to pursuing his career at Xerox and Cornell University, Bob has served as a trustee for many years and in recent years has been leading retreat at the Center.
In a retreat talk Bob gave in November 2014, he explored listening, understanding, and another way of being that comes out of this presence, this hereness. In Bob’s words, “In this hereness there’s some kind of . . . intelligence that works totally outside of this thinking process . . . And it’s not just intelligence. The word I like to use is compassion.”
In a February 2015 talk, Bob goes into a question that Toni Packer posed at a meeting they had at a retreat many years ago: “Why are you here?” Use this link to reach Bob’s audio talks.
