Saturday August 19 | 9am-8pm

With Buddhist nun, Kelsang Rigden

About the retreat

Our mind is often disturbed by painful thoughts and feelings that disrupt our sense of well-being and cause us to disrupt our personal relationships and to experience various kinds of suffering. Buddha teaches us practical methods to purify our mind of this negativity and thus reduce our suffering now and in the future. As our mind becomes purer, our experiences and relationships improve. Eventually, when we completely purify our mind, we will experience a completely pure world. In this retreat, we will learn about and begin to practice purifying our mind.

Each meditation session will be guided by Kelsang Rigden with a short explanation of the meditation object and then a guided meditation allowing participants to get a good experience of the meditation. Except for registration we will be observing silence until noon.

You are welcome to drop in for just a session or two or stay the whole day!
