Donal

The world today is full of uncertainty, hopelessness, fear and sorrow. Sorrow is both an outward and inner experience and its source lies in the depths of the human heart.

The heart of our retreat will be meditation as taught in the Mahamudra tradition but we will address our human problems placed in the wider context of meditation as a way of life. Inquire if it’s possible to live our lives from a source beyond the spring’s of sorrow.

To Die with Presence

In one of his last teachings, Akong Rinpoche instructed his students to always reflect on the impermanence of life and to remember that when death comes there can be no holding back. To that end, the Bardo group invites you to join them for a morning of reflection and planning, as they introduce the “When I go” booklet.
