On Vimeo Livestream and Zoom
Ven. Thubten Chodron leads the Abbey’s annual one-week retreat online. Join us for meditation on Medicine Buddha.
A maximum of 15 guests may attend this retreat in person.
See details below.
Medicine Buddha practice is especially effective for developing compassion, love, and bodhicitta, and for physical healing. Through meditating on Medicine Buddha, we come to deeper understanding of healing as we purify the causes of suffering and enhance the causes for lasting happiness.
Ven. Chodron will guide us in the Medicine Buddha practice, explaining its background and how to do the meditation. She will also teach on a text yet to be determined. The retreat will include teachings, daily practice sessions, and facilitated discussions.
Here is the general retreat schedule, subject to slight change as the date gets closer.
|5:30-7:00 am||Meditation practice|
