MAHAMUDRA RETREAT MARCH 2017
The next Mahamudra Retreat at KTP will take place March 31-April 2.
This retreat has been designed so that you may attend for a single session or use a cabin and be in residence for the entire retreat. We are asking part time participants to attend the morning sessions. The vow of Refuge is required to attend and will be offered during the retreat.
We offer this retreat for your benefit and to support your meditation practice. The retreat is based on Bokar Rinpoche's Mahamudra program which has been continued by Khenpo Lodro Donyo Rinpoche. For those of you have been regularly participating in this retreat and are committed to these practices this retreat will hopefully inspire your practice. For new or returning participants the sessions will include the instruction and practices of calm abiding, insight, preliminaries to Mahamudra and bodhicitta and tonglen. For those wishing to immerse themselves in the complete retreat experience we will begin the day with Green Tara puja and end the day with the Chenrezik puja.
The cost of the retreat is on a donation basis according to your level of participation. Three or more sessions per day, suggested donation $25 per day and includes cabin use. Single session, suggested donation $10. Please register by March 5 with Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org or in person and let her know the sessions you will be attending and if you need a cabin. If you stay the day or are in residence you will be responsible for your own meals. We are looking forward to practicing with you all.
