Four Meditations to Freedom: The Four Seals of Mahamudra 

Away Retreat at IKRC Grand Canyon

September 9-12 

In this retreat at the World Peace Temple at the IKRC Grand Canyon, leave the ordinary world behind and discover your potential for lasting peace. During this retreat, Gen Lingpur and Gen Tabkay will guide meditations exploring the "Four Seals of Mahamudra". The condensation of Buddha's teachings, these four liberating insights into reality help us to abandon negative states of mind and establish authentic peace from within. These meditations include:

  1. The peaceful nature of our own mind

  2. Subtle impermanence 

  3. The origin of our suffering and how to abandon negative minds

  4. The practice of meditation and the path to true happiness

  5. Realizing the liberating wisdom of ultimate truth, emptiness.
