This retreat is for individuals who have previously received the necessary empowerment and preliminary teachings for Bokar Mahamudra Yidam practice.
KCC's month of personal retreat begins March 3, 2023.
Personal retreat is an excellent way to deepen one’s practice in the support of other community members. During this month, people can sign up for stays ranging from a weekend up to the whole month. Everyone will keep the same practice schedule but will practice on their own.
We are pleased to be able to once again host our annual one-month opportunity for personal retreat at Ser Chö Ösel Ling, our retreat land in Goldendale, WA. Some may sign up for the entire month and others will come for stays ranging from a weekend to three weeks. Each week of retreat will begin on a Friday from March 1 until March 29, 2024. Time periods available are for 1-week, 2-weeks, 3-weeks, 4-weeks and weekends, all beginning on a Friday.
So much of our unease, self-criticism, despondency, or stress is caused by thoughts and patterns of thinking that we are often barely aware of. Meditation is about becoming more and more familiar with the essence of our being—that which lies beneath all fleeting experiences and is a source of inherent well being. This retreat can act as an opportunity to give more of our being to (engage more deeply in) this process and can equally serve as an introduction to or as an infusion of inspiration for this path of discovery.
