Event description
Please join us for our Annual Retreat to be held at the Wave Street Studio in Monterey, CA.

About this Event

It will be a 4-day non-residential retreat, running from Thursday, February 13 to Sunday, February 16. The schedule starts at 8 AM each morning, going until about 6 PM (ending at 3:00pm on Sunday). It will include daily sessions of Amitabha and Green Tara sadhana/prayer recitation, periods of quiet meditation, receiving or renewing our Bodhisattva Vows, and receiving teachings by our precious teacher, Khenpo Karten Rinpoche. There will also be a Q&A session on the last day to give you the opportunity to ask your Dharma questions. You will receive a copy of the schedule upon arrival.

The text that Rinpoche has chosen to teach on is called "Self-Liberating Meditation: A Profound Method for Attaining Enlightenment according to the Ultimate Great Perfection". It was composed by the great Tibetan Master Patrul Rinpoche (1808-1887). In this text, he presents us with clear instructions on Dzogchen meditation, a way to realize our natural and unstained mind. The translators from Lotsawa House described this text as “the style is direct, eloquent and moving.” It is suitable for beginning and advanced practitioners of the Buddha Dharma. The teachings will be given in Tibetan and English. Copies of the text will be given out at the Studio.

You are invited for attend anytime from one day up to all four days as fits your time and schedule.

The Wave Street Studio has a small cafe, offering a variety of tea and coffee options, fruit and pastries. The Studio is also located near accommodations and restaurants to aid you in finding lodging and for meals. Since this is a non-residential retreat, you are responsible for your meals and lodging.
