Ignite the Courageous Heart of Compassion - Winter Retreat

Thursday, December 28 to Monday, January 1, online via Zoom and onsite at Nalanda West
This year’s Winter Retreat will include morning and afternoon meditation sessions plus an evening Mahamudra meditation, with teachings and contemplations on the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva and Lojong Mind Training.

We step into Winter Retreat to discover how these practices are useful for our lives today. We learn to make them personal, relevant solutions to the problems we face on a daily basis. Not lofty, just practical. Not an immediate fix, but an ongoing support that leads to the change we want.
