AWAY RETREAT AT IKRC GRAND CANYON
FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY OCT 8–10, 2021 / IN-PERSON ONLY
Mahamudra Tantra Retreat
Training in the deepest levels of mental peace
Treat yourself to some peace of mind. Mental peace is the result of meditation. By meditating, our busy-ness and inner distractions will subside, making our mind calm and still. Abiding in the deep inner peace of this emptiness, there are no disturbing thoughts, no pain, no worry, no anger, no conflict, and no fear. A sense of happiness and well-being naturally arise from within.
During this weekend retreat, we will enjoy powerful meditations on Mahamudra Tantra. This is deeply relaxing and empowering. Through these powerful mediations, we gain insight into the flexible and limitless nature of our own mind. This in turn helps us to understand, through our own experience, how to actualize our potential for lasting happiness and freedom.
By accessing the pure, clear nature of our mind, we gain the freedom to respond to our daily life in the most constructive possible manner.
This retreat will be guided by Gen Kelsang Chokyan, Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center New Mexico. It will be taking place at the International Kadampa Retreat Center (IKRC) Grand Canyon. While you are enjoying inspiring teachings and meditations in the very blessed Kadampa Temple, you will also enjoy a relaxing get-away in the quiet and natural environment of the Kaibab National Forest. The retreat center has very comfortable hotel-style rooms and a large dining room with three delicious vegetarian meals served daily. There will be plenty of time in between sessions for relaxing, reading, and quiet walks in the woods. This special weekend retreat is the most meaningful way to unwind and restore.
Heart Jewel prayers will be used for all sessions.
