Event description

Description

In these challenging times, a calm mind and open heart are essential to our own wellbeing and that of others. Tibetan Buddhism offers a wide range of meditation practices which enable us to develop our innate potential for compassion and wisdom. These practices include sitting and walking meditation as well as visualization and chanting practices. During this retreat we will receive teachings on these practices inherited from great masters of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, and practice them under the guidance of Ven. Ani Depa and Ven. Ani Lhadrun.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Venerable Ani Depa is a monastic ordained for over 30 years in the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. She received her ordination from the great meditation master Kalu Rinpoche in 1986, after which she completed two traditional three-year retreats at Kagyu Thubten Choling Monastery in New York. She has resided at the monastery since finishing her retreats in 1994 and is one of its resident teachers.

Venerable Ani Lhadrun received genyen (lay devotee) initiation from the very venerable Kalu Rinpoche in 1986, and continued practice while working and raising a family of four sons. She received monastic ordination from Tai Situ Rinpoche in 2011 and then entered the three-year retreat. Upon completion of retreat she re-affirmed ordination and remained at Kagyu Thubten Choling, where she is also a resident teacher.
