one day retreat

You are invited to participate in our one-day retreat on Saturday April 6th.  We meditate on the Chenrezig compassion mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, and dedicate the merit to all beings.

We have scheduled four practice sessions of mantra recitation.  We collect as many mantras as possible, both individually and as a group.  You are welcome to join us for the full retreat or any of the individual sessions. (See schedule)

Tea and coffee are provided.  Please bring your own lunch and dessert to share if you like.

This annual retreat is usually held in January.  Unfortunately, it was cancelled after a car crashed into our temple room.  Fortunately, no one was hurt, and we can rebuild. We are temporarily meeting in our community room.  

Chenrezig’s mantra evokes our love and compassion essence and opens our hearts. ZaChoeje Rinpoche teaches us that love, compassion, and kindness are all qualities of our basic goodness. These are the essence of our being.
