Jan 13 – 14: Finding Mental Freedom weekend with Gen Jindak


January 13 – 14

Join us and discover the transformative power of Buddhist wisdom to help you achieve liberation from suffering and attain true happiness.

Can we ever be free from all suffering and dissatisfaction, or find real happiness, while such unpeaceful states of mind remain in our heart? This weekend Gen Jindak presents Buddhist teachings and meditations on the path to liberation – the permanent inner peace that can be attained only by reducing and eventually abandoning our anger, uncontrolled desire, and ignorance.

January Retreats

In these guided weekends, we will use “Lamrim” meditations which means the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. This retreat will go through one complete cycle of the Lamrim presentation in the book Modern Buddhism. Short retreats provide the ideal opportunity to contemplate the teachings we have received and deepen our understanding and familiarity with them.
