With everything going in our world we need some healing. To be a positive agent of change we need a state of mind that is more consistently relaxed, courageous and energized. And we can do that. In this half-day retreat you will find practical methods to heal your mind, and our world. You will find new ways to awaken the happiness that lies within all of us. In the second session you will have the opportunity to engage in the powerful visualization and meditation practice of Medicine Buddha and receive some essential commentary to this practice.
Note: In session two of this event we will use Medicine Buddha Prayers. If you are not familiar with these, and would like to follow along, you can purchase a digital booklet here.
