Honoring the Buddha Workshop

Held on the anniversary of the Buddha’s enlightenment, this workshop will focus on meditations and prayers that connect us to awakened presence. Devotions directed in this way can cleanse the dark ignorance and frustration of desire and aversion, transforming mind into a precious receptacle for realization. Staying balanced within this open and responsive space, each thought and each dimension of experience conveys radiance and the visible blessings of the Buddha. Cost: $80. Includes vegetarian buffet lunch.
Primary Instructor: Sylvia Gretchen. Prerequisite: Sincere interest in the Buddha’s teachings. Workshop participants are also invited to attend a special chanting ceremony dedicated to Shakyamuni Buddha from 8–9:30 PM on May 21.
  Make it a retreat!  Participants may arrange to stay overnight in one of the Institute’s comfortable guest rooms for an additional $45 per night. As a retreatant overnight workshop guests are offered complimentary Sunday morning meditation and Tibetan Yoga class.
