Immeasurable Equanimity in a World of Boundless Diversity


Saturday, October 6  9:00am—12:00pm Session #1
Saturday, November 3  9:00am—12:00pm  Session #2

Saturday, December 1  9:00am—12:00pm  Session #3


During his lifetime, the Buddha demonstrated that the deep practice of equanimity brings clarity, confidence and presence to our thoughts, speech and actions, no matter what we experience.

Perhaps our first deepest prejudice is against an accurate view of our own and others' true nature, that pure Buddha Nature within every single being.

Can we find equanimity toward our own emotional turmoil, toward what arises in our own minds as we meet the vast diversity of this world and issues of racism, classism, sexism and more? How do we manage the diversity of reactions we ourselves experience?   

All are welcome to explore together in safety and honesty.

The Practice of Mind Training: Including Tonglen, the Seven Points, and More


Thursday, November 8 (evening) to
Wednesday, November 14 (morning)


In the West, the Mind Training tradition is one of the most popular and most effective approaches to Buddhist meditation.

In the beginning of this six-day retreat we will focus on developing a fundamental conceptual understanding of the foundational tenets underpinning the Mind Training tradition. We will also focus on developing a deeper experiential relationship with the Mind Training practices. This two-fold approach of deepening our conceptual and experiential understanding will follow throughout the retreat.

Lama Michael Conklin and Tim Campbell
