Next Weekend Retreat!
Compassion-Lojong (Mind Training) Weekend retreat
Transforming Difficult Times with Compassion / Venerable Steve & Jon Landaw
Friday through Sunday, May 15 - 17
This weekend retreat gives us an opportunity to gain familiarity with the teachings and practices known in Tibetan as lo-jong. Passed down for centuries as the heart-treasure of such great practitioners as the successive Dalai Lamas, these methods enable us to transform all our experiences, including our most difficult problems, into the spiritual path of genuine happiness and fulfillment. Through these eminently practical teachings we can learn to use everything we encounter to deepen our compassion and thereby make our life truly meaningful.
