Healing Retreat: The Practice of Taking and Giving

9th Sep 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

At his initial teachings 2,600 years ago, Buddha Shakyamuni presented the four noble truths, the first of which addresses the nature of internal and external suffering. However, he also offered a remarkable prescription for healing these sufferings.

During this retreat which supplements our 2017 Medicine Buddha Empowerment, Vajrapani Kadampa Buddhist Centre’s Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Mila will examine various healing methods for our body and mind. Through them, we can purify our self cherishing and negative actions, cultivate great compassion, heal our delusions, and put our wishing love to work by giving happiness to all living beings. Everyone is welcome to attend. Join us for one, some or all of the sessions.

1st Session (Medicine Buddha Sadhana): 10:00 – 11:15
2nd Session (The Practice of Taking): 11:45 – 13:00
3rd Session (The Practice of Giving): 13:45 – 15:00

Centre Members: All sessions are free
