SATURDAY, JANUARY 20
We all wish to make positive changes that allow us to grow spiritually and improve our lives, but we often get stuck in old habits. The practice of purification is an essential training for making authentic spiritual progress, and purification practice is very easy to learn. During this one-day retreat, Gen Khedrub will offer short teachings, guide meditations, and explain how to engage in the practice of Vajrasattva, the Buddha of Purification. Everyone is welcome. Attend just one session, or engage in a half- or full-day retreat.
This event is part of the month-long Vajrasattva Preliminary Guide Retreat.
Cost: $30 for the entire day ($15 for supporters) / $10 per session ($5 for supporters). Everyone is welcome.
Bring your own lunch or visit one of the nearby restaurants (restaurant recommendations available upon request). A light dinner will be served between sessions 3 and 4.
Session 1: 7:30AM
Session 2: 10:30AM
Session 3: 4:00PM
Session 4: 7:00PM
