One-Month Medicine Buddha Retreat
January 6 @ 12:00 pm - February 3 @ 12:00 pm PST
The Abbey’s annual Winter Retreat offers a beautiful opportunity to deepen Dharma practice. This winter’s retreat focuses on the Meditation Buddha practice with meditations on the gradual path (lam rim).
Qualified meditators may attend in person.
If you’ve been meditating for a while, are fully vaccinated, have studied the lam rim (gradual path) teachings, and want to go deeper in meditation, please join us.
The Medicine Buddha retreat is a group retreat with 5 meditation sessions and a study session daily, as well as weekly teachings with Ven. Thubten Chodron. You will practice with the nuns and monk of the Abbey community. The retreat is held in silence.
More detailed Winter Retreat information is on our Winter Retreat page.
Guidelines for how prepare for the retreat will be posted as they are developed. In the meantime, here’s the Medicine Buddha practice text. A short version is also in the Pearl of Wisdom II prayer book.
If you can’t be here for a month, join in the Medicine Buddha Retreat from Afar.
