Upcoming Workshops and Retreats

May 15 - 17
with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and Lodro Rinzler
Inspired by his book, The Shambhala Principle, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche invites us to deepen our meditation practice and take that into our lives, viewing whatever we encounter as an opportunity to create an enlightened society on the spot.
July 3 - 8
with Acharya Noel McLellan
How we are is as important as what we teach, and how we are depends on how we relate to own minds and hearts. In this retreat we explore meditation, teachings and contemplations that help us to connect to the richness in our lives and teaching activity.
