About the Retreat

The Mind of Enlightenment (Bodhicitta) is an altruistic attitude of universal compassion. It is possible for any human to develop it through study and practice. It brings great happiness to oneself and others, and it clears away all the obstacles and problems of our life.

Discover the clear meditation instruction available in Tibetan Buddhism that enables us to develop our innate qualities of loving kindness and compassion. Become skilled at applying these techniques to generate the mind of bodhichitta, the wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others, known to be the heart of Buddha’s teachings.

“We are standing on the shore only because being there puts us in a position to pull others out. As long as we are still in the swamp, even though we long to help, we cannot. If we try to help others out, we will just sink deeper into the mire with them. If we want to benefit others effectively, we must first be standing on firm ground.”
