15th – 24th September 2018
With Paula (Nyingje) Chichester
We will feel “oneness” with His Holiness and generate bodhicitta for all; so PLEASE come, we need to create the cause for His Holiness’s long life.
The main focus of the retreat will be the sadhana that was written by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama for his students called Merging the Mind of the Guru with Chenrezig. It is a very beautiful and inspiring meditation that combines analytical and stabilizing meditation. I chose to offer this practice for three reasons:
If you think about a world without the Dalai Lama, then what could be more beneficial than to spend a few days concentrating on sending long life energy to our precious teacher? This world needs his presence more than ever!
This sadhana is perfect for learning the foundations of all Buddhist practice. My goal is to show you how to train the mind with joy and ease, how to create the relaxation that opens to realization and contentment. You’ll feel really, really good as you transform your being while shining blessings out to the world.
Because of interdependence, the softening of our personal unrest, anxiety and depression extends to all beings who are experiencing dire disease in this age of endless war, economic and environmental anxiety and degradation. This is one way we can aid and comfort all the beings on our planet — create the cause for compassion’s peace and skilful means wisdom.
