During this retreat we will learn the deeply relaxing and profoundly illuminating meditations on the nature of the mind – or Mahamudra. These simple and inspiring meditations have been practiced for centuries, enabling anyone to experience the natural clarity and peace of their own mind. Through training in Mahamudra meditation we can discover our potential for genuine happiness and find inner freedom from anxiety, fear, and other painful emotions. The retreat is open to everyone.

The retreat will begin Friday evening at 7.00 pm with an introduction and will conclude on Sunday at 4.00 pm. Each session will consist of traditional Buddhist prayers, a short Buddhist teaching to introduce the meditation for the session, and a guided meditation.
