Vajrasattva Purification Retreat

Oct 15-19, 2015

Introduction with Kadampa Teacher, Sandra Lewis


By engaging in this purification retreat we develop a strong connection with Buddha Vajrasattva and have the opportunity to purify our mind of delusions, negativity and obstacles holding us back from reaching our full potential.

The retreat will begin with an Introductory Talk:
Thur Oct 15 · 7-8:30pm
with Kadampa Teacher Sandra Lewis


Sandra will explain the practice ‘Meditation & Recitation of Solitary Vajrasattva’ and give commentary on how to engage in the retreat. The rest of the retreat, from Friday 16 – Monday 19, will be unguided. Retreat sessions are 90 minutes long and consist of chanted prayers (Offering to the Spiritual Guide with Vajrasattva prayers) and a period of silence where we engage in meditation.
