AUGUST 19 - 23 IN OAK PARK

In this retreat, you can gain an inner experience of each of the 21 Lamrim meditations. Lamrim means “stages of the path to enlightenment,” and is one of the most precious treasures of Kadampa Buddhism. Following these special instructions, we can overcome our burden of negativity and cultivate beneficial, positive states of mind. In this way we can enjoy our life and make it truly meaningful each day. Come for as many retreat sessions as you would like. Each session lasts approximately an hour and fifteen minutes, and includes teaching and guided meditation.


Each session lasts approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.
