Weekend Intensive "Chenrezig the Bodhisattva of Compassion"
“Chenrezig the Bodhisattva of Compassion”
with Lama Assi
June 15th and 16th 2019
Quite often our capacity to love seems restricted to ones immediate network of friends and family with a heart that seems to focuss soley on me and mine. With the practice of Chenrezig we are being asked to move beyond the me and mine and to make space for the infinite suffering of others, excluding no one but in order to allow the heart to open and become more inclusive instead of exclusive we need a method. This two day retreat will shed light on how to expand our fragile contracted heart.
Venerable Lama Assi is an accomplished teacher (Lama) of Vajrayana Buddhism with over 40 years experience in working for the benefit of others and guiding students on the path to enlightenment.
