Description

Daylong Meditation Retreat with

Anam Thubten and Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche

We often live unconsciously, lost in thoughts and feelings. In this state, we may experience a variety of internal problems such as anxiety, fear or anger. And yet, if we bring awareness into our daily lives we are able to find ways to stop identifying with our mental habits. Then we can experience joy and peace and, eventually, the profound epiphany of dropping into the unconditioned.

In this retreat, Anam Thubten and Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will co-teach, sharing the experience and knowledge of timeless Buddhist wisdom.

Anam Thubten grew up in Tibet and undertook Buddhist training at an early age. He is the founder and spiritual advisor of Dharmata Foundation, teaching widely in the US, Europe, and Asia. His many publications include “Embracing Each Moment” and “No Self, No Problem.” For more information: www.dharmata.org

Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche is a meditation master in the Dzogchen lineage and the author of Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness. He is the founder and spiritual director of Pristine Mind Foundation, and offers teachings for professionals, parents, children, health- care providers, psychologists, spiritual seekers, and yoga practitioners. For more information: pristinemind.org

This retreat is sponsored by the Dharmata Foundation and Pristine Mind Foundation and locally hosted by the Grass Valley Dharmata Sangha.

Event details:

There is a public parking lot behind the center, accessed from South Auburn Street. Parking can be at a premium in Grass Valley, so arrive early to get parked.

Please come early so that you can be settled in your seat by at least 9:50 in order to hear announcements and so we may promptly begin at 10.

Lunch

Lunch is not provided at the retreat, but a generous two hour lunch break is provided. There are a number of options to consider:

Tao Te Cafe: Downstairs from main tai chi studio, Body Balance Academy has the Tao Te Cafe, which is a small poke bar with quality offerings. Click here to see their menu.

The owner has provided a link to reserve your lunch, so they can guarantee having a poke bowl available for you. Click here to reserve a lunch.

Grass Valley restaurants: Grass Valley is a small town, and the retreat space is right downtown, so there are several restaurants open for lunch within a few block walk of the studio. We will provide a list of these at the front desk with your registration packet.

Other area restaurants: There are many other restaurants in the area, including beyond walking distance in Grass Valley, in Nevada City 4 miles to the north, and in the Brunwick business area between Grass Valley and Nevada City. Note that this involves driving, so your parking may not as convenient when you return, and you need to leave more time.

Bring your own lunch: If you want to bring your own lunch, note that you won't be able to eat in the hall. However, there are two small parks within a short walk of the center. We will provide a list of these as well.
