Contemplations that Inspire and Transform

A Daylong Retreat with Lama Pat Berube

Saturday, May 12, 2018  9:00am – 5:00pm daily

In this daylong, we will continue our exploration, meditation and inquiry on relaxing with impermanence and change.  We will meditate on the nine contemplations of Atisha, an eleventh century Tibetan Buddhist scholar.

These contemplations help us to explore what is most meaningful in our life in light of the reality of impermanence and the inevitability of death.   Through these contemplations, we can be inspired to live with an appreciation and joy of the preciousness of our life as we experience it moment to moment.  As we enter the final phase of our life, these contemplations can help us die with peace, love and wisdom of a life well lived.

Please join us. All are welcome.
