Becoming a Friend of the World

Our world needs harmonious communities. Family, work, spiritual, neighborhood, cities and countries - community provides meaning, connection, and support. Creating harmonious communities is healthy for us, and part of the path to enlightenment.

May 20th, Abiding in Wisdom Day Retreat

Enjoy the beauty and quiet of Whidbey Island and take part in a full-day guided meditation retreat. All our anxieties and other problems come from grasping at things in a mistaken way. What we experience depends upon our mind. By meditating on this wisdom, we will solve our inner problems of unhappy feelings. Gen Rinzin will explain this subtle dependent-relationship between our mind and what we experience and guide meditations, giving time for Q&A.
