There seems to be so much division and suffering in our community and inside our experience these days. The Medicine Buddha offers healing for our mind and body by recognizing and purifying the afflictive emotions; anger, attachment, ignorance. Our habitual methods of responding to the world prevent us from feeling the peace and kindness that is our natural state.

Join us for this one day retreat on the Medicine Buddha (Sangye Menla)

Taught by Venerable Gephel. We hope you will come to the whole day or feel free to come to any of the sessions you would like.

Healing Buddha Retreat is for tackling or purifying three poisons, attachment, anger, and ignorance. Simple one day retreat with many shorter sessions included teachings, meditations, visualization of Medicine Buddha and practice its mantra chanting and meanings. There will be a final session for questions and answers.
