Transforming our Minds with Wisdom & Compassion–
With Ling Rinpoche .
During this event, Ling Rinpoche—a young and brilliant master from the Gelugpa tradition—will share profound insights and very practical advice from the Buddhist lojong or mind training tradition. These wisdom teachings are a clear guide to help us bring authentic compassion into all areas of our lives, benefiting not only ourselves but anyone we encounter and the world at large.
Ling Rinpoche will base his teachings on the renowned lojong text, The Seven Points of Mind Training, which was written down by Geshe Chekawa, a 12th century Tibetan Buddhist master whose timeless wisdom has a refreshing immediacy for the modern world. Ling Rinpoche will teach in Tibetan and be translated directly into English, French, German and Spanish.
In addition to the main teachings with Ling Rinpoche, to allow you to bring the teachings into your experience, some of our main instructors will offer optional guided meditation and compassion practices, as well as mindful physical exercises.
This weekend is followed by a 7 day Lojong Retreat. You can save 20% on the Lonjong Retreat fees if you join the two events. Choose the event "Ling Rinpoche and Lojong Practice Retreat" while registering online. More info about the Lojong Practice Retreat
