Avalokitesvara: Way of Love and Compassion

Visiting Lama at the Denman Hermitage on Saturday, August 6 – Sunday, August 7

Teachings/Meditation led by Lama Shenpen.

“Lama Shenpen has led a full life, first as a married woman with children, and then as an ordained Buddhist nun. She is best described as a true spiritual elder, having spent much of her life studying and practicing the Dharma. In 1995 she accomplished a Three Year Retreat on Mt Tam, Salt Spring Island, with the guidance of by her root Lama, the late Kalu Rinpoche.

Lama’s retreat will focus on the practice of devotion, love and compassion, particularly embodied in the luminous ideal of Avalokitesvara. She will explain what is required to access the purer level of your being through meditation. Lama’s instruction will cover such subjects as Calm-abiding (shamata) practice, meditation posture, sitting and walking meditation, going-to-sleep meditation, the four thoughts that turn the mind, silence, and how best to establish a daily routine. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers. Learn how the power of love for others is capable of profoundly transfiguring your heart and mind.”

Another engaging event facilitated by the Denman Hermitage!

P.S.
It’s going to be wonderful to have an esteemed woman Lama give these teachings on my solar return 🙂
