Last Opportunity for Three Yana & Sutrayana Retreats in June

Sutrayana & The Three Yanas - June 3-30, 2017

Sutrayana, and the complete Three Yana teachings, “creates a scaffolding wherein all the practices and teachings that one has received are held in place.” – Polly Ryan, MFT.

We want to remind you of your last opportunity to join the Sutrayana retreat at Tara Mandala. We invite you on June 3-10 to receive these beautiful teachings from Polly Ryan, about the Buddha’s path and core philosophies, and participate in practices that shall deepen your spiritual experience, whatever level you may be. Or, make an extended visit and stay for the Three Yana Retreat from June 3-30, which encompasses all three “vehicles” of Buddhism (Sutrayana, Mahayana & Vajrayana). Mahayana and Vajrayana will be taught by Lama Tsultrim Allione.

In this 2-min video Polly Ryan introduces herself and outlays an insightful background for the Sutrayana/Three Yana retreats and why it is so valuable for practitioners of all levels today.
