Autumn Getaway Retreat

Letting Go of the Past

October 21-23, 2022
with Special Guest Teacher Gen Kelsang Chenma

It is time to REALLY live your life. Many of us feel haunted by our past, and it’s easy to feel bogged down by regrets, painful memories and negative self-concepts. Buddhist teachings offer gentle but precise and practical methods for acknowledging our past and moving into a more empowered, healed and confident state. This retreat will allow plenty of time to explore how to apply these methods so that each participant can go home feeling sure they can integrate these practices into their busy life.
