Wisdom 3 Day Retreat

Saturday 30th May-Monday 1st June 2020

What is it about?

In the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras, the Buddha identified wisdom realizing emptiness as the means to cut through the ignorance. Without this understanding, we are bound into cyclical existence and stuck in our unenlightened state. While such stainless wisdom is said to be somewhat difficult to cultivate, masters of the Indian and Tibetan Madhyamika tradition, such as Nagarjuna, Chandrakirti, and Lama Tsongkhapa, have left us a treasure of insightful texts and commentaries to aid us in this process.

In this group meditation retreat, we will focus on the various techniques for contemplating the wisdom of emptiness, using the Wisdom Chapter of Lama Tsonghapa's Middle Length Lam Rim and guided meditations on emptiness.

Investment: $180 for the weekend includes 3 healthy vegetarian meals
