Attending a day-long or weekend program or group retreat helps us refresh and rejuvenate. Training our mind to be calm, revitalizing our body through time in nature, opening to our natural wisdom, and learning ways to care for others are all excellent ways to energize both mind and body.

An online workshop with Stephanie Johnston
December 18, 2022, 9 – 11am PT
Visualization is a key meditation skill used in many practices of Tibetan Buddhism. Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana methods all rely upon it. So, what does visualization really refer to in the context of meditation? When does it apply? How does one do it? How does it support awakening? Can you do visualization practices if you are not a visual person? These are some of the topics that will be explored in this 2-hour workshop.
For Buddhist practitioners of any age and practice stage.
Online Open Retreat
October 9-11, 2021
Milarepa was a great 12th-century Tibetan meditation master. He attained vast wisdom through his many years in mountain retreat, and composed many songs expressing his realization. These songs have been passed down through the generations and are as relevant today as they were centuries ago.
In this online program, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, together with Lama Rabten Tshering and Mitra Tyler Dewar, will explore how the timeless wisdom treasure of Milarepa applies to us today. This is an unrestricted program. All are welcome!
