PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

In this special weekend retreat, we will explore the Buddhist teachings on training the mind, known as Lojong. We will discover their transformative power to help us let go of painful states of mind and live with greater purpose and joy.  Through these practices, every experience of life can become part of our  path to freedom and enlightenment for the benefit of all.
We will learn special mindfulness practices to bring insights from meditation into the rest of our lives. We will discuss how to apply these teachings to work, relationships, health or money problems. Most of all, we will have the opportunity to connect with others in a friendly, joyful and welcoming spiritual community!
The weekend’s teachings will add essential commentary to Lojong instructions, based on the book Universal Compassion, by the internationally recognized meditation master the Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
