Weekend Away Retreat in Julian
ABIDING IN PEACE
AWAKING YOUR BUDDHA NATURE

Fri, May 31 through Sun, Jun 2

Experience a deeper level of your own mind
—with Buddhist nun and meditation teacher, Gen Kelsang Lhadron.

Step out of the worries and irritations of daily life and spend time developing your Buddha nature. When we experience the natural peace of our root mind, we gain authentic confidence in our potential to become the person we want to be—loving, wise, and ultimately free from suffering. Familiarity with these meditations will strengthen your daily practice and develop a strong foundation for a spiritual life.

During this retreat, we will engage in deep meditations on the very subtle mind, experience real refuge, and awaken a natural wish for enlightenment. 

Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Everyone is welcome.
