In this two-session retreat we will explore the mandala offering, in which we learn to envision the universe as a pure land. The mandala offering is traditionally said to be the most praiseworthy of offerings. It is also an extraordinarily imaginative and joyful visualization. In exploring it we will look at the power of the mind and the imagination to transform our world, and we will look at how to make this offering directly applicable to our own lives, which we are encouraged to make daily.
