Lamrim Retreat: Stages of the Path
January 14–19, 2022
INTRODUCTION TALK | FRIDAY, JANUARY 14, 6:30PM
Retreat with 15 meditations to develop a peaceful mind
We all have the potential for self-transformation—a limitless capacity for the growth of good qualities—but to fulfill this potential we need to know what to do at every stage of our spiritual journey. This retreat offers step-by-step guidance on the meditation practices called Kadam Lamrim, the condensation of all Buddha’s teachings. When practiced regularly, these meditations will lead us to lasting inner peace and happiness.
Everyone, especially those new to this practice, is encouraged to attend the Introduction Talk Friday night.
The Introduction Talk will be with Rick Vinnay. All other sessions will be guided by Senior Kadampa Teachers or Self Guided. We will be using the Prayers for Meditation sadhana with meditations from Mirror of Dharma with Additions.
