One week retreat with David Berry
February 19th to 26th 2012
This retreat will support you to redirect your energy to creative activity and the emergence of your full capacity to find calm, to notice, to accept, to transcend, to celebrate and to contribute to the beings around you in difficult and interesting times. There will be a reminder of our birth and death and an examination of the preciousness and opportunity of the interval between.
Traditional Buddhist teachings, other spiritual traditions, gems from science and innovative means of Namgyal Rinpoche will be strung together as prayer beads giving you tools to use on your own, invoking transcendence, harmony and depth in your being.
David Berry is an inspirational teacher. He studied with Namgyal Rinpoche, from 1971 and was ordained a few weeks before Namgyal’s death in 2003.
Namgyal Rinpoche said, “What I am about is helping people break out of their stagnation so they can re-enter the flow of natural evolution and transcendence ….. the enlightenment process is going on within you in spite of your feeble attempts to thwart it.”
David’s life has flowed from TV, and radio with Garrison Keillor’s “Prairie Home Companion” to working with The White House Council on Environmental Quality, speaking to the Russian Academy of Science –organizing the Prayer Vigil for the Earth on the National Mall in Washington DC, and teaching around the world.
Cost: $665.00 USD room and meals – double occupancy Plus Dana for teaching. Including a boat trip through the nature reserve and snorkeling
