Memorial Day Weekend Retreat

May 22 @ 3:00 pm - May 25 @ 3:00 pm PDT

Venerable Thubten Chodron

At this time (March 15), we hope to hold events after April 15 as scheduled.

We’ll reassess the local and global situation regularly. Check back on this course after May 1. 

How to See Yourself as You Really Are
course with Ven. Thubten Chodron

What’s the root of all our problems? We don’t know who we are and how things actually exist. This is the very heart of the Buddha’s teaching.

Ven. Thubten Chodron teaches from the final chapters of the book, How to See Yourself as You Really Are, by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and translated by Jeffrey Hopkins, to help us understand ourselves and our world from a more realistic—and loving—perspective. As these teachings delve into philosophy, some background in Buddhist thought is helpful, but not required. To prepare, you can see previous years’ teachings on our You Tube Channel.

A dana offering and registration form are requested to reserve your place for the retreat.

Arrive by 3:00 on Friday. Retreat begins with a live-streamed Lamrim teaching that begins promptly at 5:55. Retreat ends after 2:00 on Monday.

Read all about Visiting the Abbey, including Getting Here, and Visiting Guidelines.
