- On Saturday morning Khenpo will give the empowerment of Medicine Buddha, the Buddha of Healing. This ritual introduces participants to the enlightened nature of our body, speech, and mind and authorizes us to practice the visualization, mantra recitation, and meditation of Medicine Buddha. The practice of the peaceful Medicine Buddha is a profound method of purifying the subtle causes of illness for oneself and others.
- On Saturday afternoon Khenpo will give the oral transmission of the liturgical practice (sadhana) of Medicine Buddha, teach how to perform it, and lead group practice. During the practice sessions Khenpo will also offer instruction in other meditation methods such as the generation of love, calm abiding, and insight meditation. He will explain how to blend these with meditation on Medicine Buddha.
- Sunday morning and afternoon will be dedicated to continued explanation and practice of the sadhana of Medicine Buddha.Retreat Fee: $25 per day $40 for weekend
