February 12th to 19th 2017

We react to the conditions we face.  Aware of it or not, our experiences and actions are influenced by conditioning from our responses to earlier circumstances.  One name for this cycle of trance-like reaction is Samsara.

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.

The retreat is open, not silent, but with periods of silence of from a few hours up to a day.  Part of the wonder of this retreat will be what you bring to it.

David Berry studied with Namgyal Rinpoche, since 1971 and was ordained a few weeks before his teacher’s death in 2003.

Rinpoche helped people break free of stagnation to move toward the birthright of all beings: awakening and realization.

“The awakening process is happening within you despite your feeble attempts to thwart it.” Namgyal Rinpoche
