Saturday, October 17th, 2020 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Kushok Lobsang Dhamchoe, Spiritual Director of Gaden Samten Ling Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Society. Please visit https://www.gsl-ab.ca/spiritual-director/ to learn more about our Spiritual Director.
Course Description – The Buddha of Compassion (Chenrezig) One-Day Retreat
Kushok Lobsang Dhamchoe will lead participants in the visualization and recitation practice of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. This practice develops a strong connection with the Buddha of Compassion through the Teacher, which can ripen one’s own potential for true compassion and transformation. This one-day retreat will give students a rare opportunity to spend the day with Kushok in spiritual practice and to learn from his deep knowledge and experience.
There are no prerequisites for this retreat. It is, however, designed to complement both the Buddha of Compassion (Chenrezig) —A Mind Focusing Meditation and Getting to Know Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. Students interested in deepening their knowledge and practice of Chenrezig may be interested in registering for all three, 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 Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion, and who would like to spend the day focusing on spiritual development.
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.
