Purification Retreat with the Practice of Vajrasattva
An Urban Retreat | Friday Dec 13 to Sunday Dec 15
About the Retreat:
Everyone wishes to be free from problems and suffering and spiritual practitioners wish to gain spiritual realizations quickly and easily. Buddha teaches that the main cause of a problem-filled life is negative karma and the main obstacle to our Dharma practice are imprints from our past mistakes. The method to eliminate negative karma from our mental continuum is the practice of purification.
In this weekend retreat Kadam Kelly Loeffelmann will guide us in the practice of mantra recitation of the Buddha Vajrasattva, who is the Wisdom Buddha appearing in a special aspect to help us purify negativity. Through deep and sincere meditation and recitation we will accomplish strong purification of our mind. We will leave retreat feeling significantly lighter and spiritually “fit.” It will be like a spa for inner wellness.
Each session consists of Prayers for Mediation, instructions on the meditation contemplation, and guided meditation. Everyone is welcome!
