Profound Simplicity Meditation Retreat

Relax your mind in simplicity, released from struggle and effort,

like a garuda soaring through space.                –Tagpo Tashi Namgyal

This weekend retreat is open to all new and senior practitioners who wish to establish or deepen their meditation practice. For vajrayana practitioners, the ability to rest the mind in stillness is essential for all other practices, including sadhana, guru yoga and mind nature.

Drawing on pith instructions from lineage masters, the topics will include the qualities that make meditation effective, the learning process that makes teachings personally relevant, and how the experience of meditation can penetrate daily life.

Early registration is encouraged, and priority will be given to those who commit to the entire retreat


Saturday & Sunday, September 14-15, 2024, 8:30 am to 5:30 pm
