Sutrayana: The Journey of the Buddha

With Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam and Pieter Oosthuizen

June 17 - 24, 2018

Sutrayana looks deeply at the life of the Buddha and his teachings, including the Four Noble Truths, the Noble Eight-fold Path and the Twelve Links of Interdependent Origination. We will do intensive practice of Shamata (breath awareness) and walking meditation, and we will also learn about Buddhism through the life stories of the Buddha.

During the retreat there will be noble silence and six hours of practice per day as well as two hours of teachings. An optional oral exam will be given at the end of the retreat. We are sorry that we cannot accommodate children on the land during this retreat.

This is a required retreat for the Magyu Mother Lineage Program and the Gateway Program.

If you are attending the Mahayana retreat and wish to stay on the land between retreats, choose 3 extra nights. Extra night lodging is only an option for those taking two consecutive retreats.

This retreat is open to all.

Suggested Dana: $240-$320
