2020 Meditation Retreat: The Path to Freedom

2020 Meditation Retreat: The Path to Freedom
3rd Annual Weekend Guided Meditation Retreat

Kadam Lucy James

Taught by Kadam Lucy James

Gen Kelsang Rinzin

Taught by Gen Kelsang Rinzin

7:00 pm Friday, August 21st to 1:00 pm Sunday, August 23rd

Would you like to really free your mind?! Tune in for this special livestream retreat with Kadam Lucy and Gen Rinzin for insightful instructions and uplifting guided meditations.

In his first teaching, the four noble truths, Buddha Shakyamuni encouraged us to use our present human life in the most meaningful way--to liberate our mind from all the suffering and negativity that we experience day to day, in life after life. Those who do this are truly wise. As the great Kadampa Buddhist master Atisha said:

“Move to the firm ground of liberation … and dry up the river of samsaric suffering.”

We will have the opportunity to meditate on the four noble truths and the three higher trainings that have been liberating people for 2,500 years. Through this we will come to enjoy a deep peace and contentment that lasts for all time. 

Moreover, as a special treat, we will also be receiving some very practical and enjoyable advice for daily life from the beloved Kadampa text “Advice from Atisha’s Heart”.

This one is not to be missed! Whether you are new to Buddhism or have years of experience, please take some valuable time out this weekend to put any anxious or unhappy thoughts on hold, enjoy the expert guidance of two excellent meditation teachers, and return with a renewed energy for life. 

If you can tune into the 6 live-streaming sessions live, that’s great; but we will also have the recordings available for a whole week, so you can find a schedule works for you.

Everyone of all backgrounds and faiths is welcome!
