May 13 @ 4:00 pm - May 15 @ 2:00 pm PDT

Chenrezig, Buddha of Compassion, Retreat

Arrive Friday, May 13. Ending after lunch on Sunday, May 15

To celebrate Vesak Day – the holiest day in the Buddhist calendar marking the anniversary of the Buddha’s birth, awakening, and passing away – the Abbey will host a Chenrezig Retreat, meditation on the Buddha of Compassion.

This will be an in-person practice retreat, which replaces the previously scheduled Nyung Ne, which is postponed until autumn.

The retreat will include mutliple meditations sessions on Saturday and Sunday morning. Familiairity with the Chenrezig practice is helpful but not required.

There are dozens of teachings about this practice on ThubtenChodron.org. Find them here.  You can also read Ven. Chodron’s book, Cultivating a Compassionate Heart.

Plan to arrive by 4 PM on Friday and depart after lunch on Sunday.

Register here.
