Half Day Retreat: Meditations on Emptiness

Saturday, November 17

10am - 1:00pm

with Buddhist monk and Resident Teacher, Kelsang Tabkay

$20 pre-registration; $25 at door (membership discounts apply)

Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more far-reaching and transformative than the teachings on emptiness, the true nature of reality.  It is through our understanding of emptiness – in particular, the freedom that we experience as a result – that we can then come to solve all our problems and be of maximum benefit to others.

In this half-day meditation retreat, we will explore this liberating wisdom with teachings and guided meditations on emptiness.

This retreat is suitable both for beginners and those more experienced.

We provide both cushions and chairs to sit on. No special clothing required. Everyone is welcome, no matter your level of experience in meditation.

Retreat Schedule

Session 1: 10am – 11:30am

Session 2: 11:45am – 1:00pm
