Cultivating the Heart of Compassion

With Drubpön Lama Karma

September 13 - 16, 2019

Mind Training, or Lojong, is a practical and inspiring teaching that transforms the mind afflicted by destructive emotions. At the heart of all practices of Tibetan Buddhism, Mind Training puts special emphasis on turning away from extreme self-centeredness and developing Bodhicitta mind, which wishes for the happiness of all sentient beings. Teachings in this retreat will center on how to cultivate compassion, patience, and wisdom. The retreat will include teachings, guided meditations, and discussion.

During this retreat Drubpön Lama Karma will teach from the Commentary on the Seven Point Mind Training (བློ་སྦྱོང་དོན་བདུན་མའི་འགྲེལ་པ།) by Sechilphu Choekyi Gyaltsen.

This retreat is open to everyone. No prior meditation experience is required.

Suggested Dana: $160 – $200
