1-Week Chenrezig Retreat

Monday, July 2, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - Monday, July 9, 2018 @ 2:00 pm

With Ven. Thubten Chodron

On the Chenrezig Retreat, take a week-long vacation with the Buddha of Compassion. Join us for the Abbey’s annual 1-week meditation retreat on 1000-Armed Chenrezig.

Chenrezig—also known as Kuan Yin or Avalokiteshvara—is one of the most beloved deities of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. With 1000 arms, he reaches out to care for all living beings, showing us that pure compassion is limitless. Reciting Chenrezig’s mantra, om mani padme hum, helps to calm our minds and reminds us to extend our compassion to others.

The annual 1-week retreat is a chance to really get a feel for meditation practice and to deepen in the Dharma. The retreat will include teachings with Ven. Thubtne Chodron as well as several daily practice sessions. We will hold noble silence.

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

Arrive by 5:00 on Monday.  Retreat ends after 2:00 on the following Monday.
