Lamrim Winter Retreat 2022

The Path to Freedom

January 21 – 25
Live-streamed. Available online for registered attendees until January 30.

In our annual Lamrim Winter Retreat, we will focus on the meditations on refuge and renunciation according to their presentation in Venerable Geshe Kelsang’s latest book, The Mirror of Dharma with Additions.  By relying on the Three Jewels: Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, we can develop a deep wish for permanent freedom from suffering. With this refuge and renunciation in our heart, we will  destroy the cause of samsara, ignorance within our mind.

Buddha Shakyamuni -Lamrim winter retreat

By developing an understanding and familiarity with lamrim (or “stages of the path to Enlightenment”) meditations, we will enjoy a special experience of peace and fulfillment that comes from a spiritually meaningful life. Ultimately Lamrim meditations will give rise to a complete transformation of our mind through the power of wisdom and compassion.

Each session will consist of a teaching, short prayers, guided meditation and time for question and answer.
