Memorial Day Weekend Retreat

May 26 @ 3:00 pm - May 29 @ 2:00 pm PDT

Venerable Thubten Chodron

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 continues teaching from 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. Ven. Chodron will begin teaching Chapter 15, “Coming to a Conclusion.”

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.
