In-depth Retreats with Gen Samten


At the World Peace Temple

Four Close Placements of Mindfulness

November 4-9 with Gen Samten

We all want to live mindfully. What does this mean and how do we do it?  Buddha taught a meditation practice where we combine wisdom and mindfulness to focus on the four areas of life that consume our attention: Our body, our feelings of happiness and sadness, our mind, and all other phenomena. During this course we will explore this method of living mindfully in a precise, practical, and lighthearted manner.

Registration opens August 31st @2pm

Medicine Buddha Empowerment & Retreat on the Eleven Reversals

December 26-31, 2022

The Healing Buddha functions to cure physical sickness and alleviate mental pain. During this unique empowerment ceremony we will create a deep connection with Medicine Buddha, that will enable us to heal ourselves and others. All disease starts in the mind and so that is where true healing also takes place.

Heal the mind with 11 reversals

To heal our mind we use Lamrim meditation to bring about a reversal of deluded attitudes and views. The 11 Reversals describe the gradual transformation of the mind from an unhealthy to a health-producing state.

Registration opens September 7th @2pm EST
