Course Description – Medicine Buddha One-Day Retreat
This one-day retreat will give students a rare opportunity to spend a few hours with Kushok Lobsang Dhamchoe as he leads participants in the visualization and spiritual practice of healing Medicine Buddha. By developing a connection with Medicine Buddha and regularly working with this practice, one can quickly receive immeasurable blessings; from healing temporary diseases and purifying the karma that produces long-run suffering, to the imperceptible blessings of merit for the ripening of ultimate happiness. Working with Medicine Buddha can be especially beneficial to practitioners in the healing or health field.
There are no prerequisites for this retreat. It is, however, designed to complement Medicine Buddha Mantra and Meditation course. Students interested in deepening their knowledge and practice of Medicine Buddha may be interested in registering for both, however, depending on individual interests and time, each is a complete course/retreat on its own.
Anyone interested in developing or strengthening their connection to Medicine Buddha and who would like to spend the day focusing on spiritual development is welcome.
Currently the retreat will only be offered virtually until such time as we are able to safely open the Centre for regular classes. It is our intention to continue offering zoom classes as an option after the Centre reopens.
Saturday, December 5th, 2020, 9:00 a.m. to 12: p.m.
