This Buddhist retreat provides an opportunity to understand and practice Lojong, the pith instructions on cultivating bodhichitta that have been passed down to us from the great Indian master, Atisha. The key practice of the Lojong path is that of Tonglen: Taking and Sending.  On this weekend retreat we will have the opportunity to deeply experience this practice and to explore the significance of Absolute Bodhichitta.


The beautiful and contemplative environment of Mt. Baldy Zen Center will provide us with an optimal setting for this retreat. The retreat will begin with lunch on Friday, August 24, 2018, and end after lunch on Sunday, August 26. The cost per person is $350. This includes all accommodation, meals, tuition, and program material costs. There is limited space so we suggest prompt enrollment. The enrollment deadline is June 1.


We hope you will be able to join us! For information and registration, email Sylvia Bercovici, click HERE. Or call 310-710-6868.


Directions to Mt. Baldy Zen Center (2 hours from Los Angeles) and retreat instructions will be provided upon registration.
