With Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche

By knowing the qualities of Avalokiteshvara, we are able to deepen and strengthen our innate compassion and empathy. Avalokiteshvara becomes a source of inspiration, a source of blessing, and a source of protection.

Such practice is especially important to overcome personal difficulties. Every uncomfortable emotion we are experiencing relates to fear—fear about our emotional and physical wellbeing, fear about our financial circumstances, fear about our loved ones. Ultimately that fear is rooted in self-clinging. Through the practice of compassion, we invest in the greater community, in humanity, and in the universe. Compassion can free us from fear and bring joy to our hearts.

You may wish to join us for the weekend on Personal Retreat, or to come for lunch in advance of the program (lunch reservations may be made in conjunction with buying your ticket). We welcome you for either, and encourage you to make plans well in advance, as space is limited.
