Upcoming Retreats & Special Events

Southwest Dharma Celebration: Seeing Beyond The Ordinary

March 31 - April 2 | at International Kadampa Retreat Center Grand Canyon

The Empowerment of Dorje Shugden & Teachings on the Heart Commitments with Gen Kelsang Rigpa, Western US National Spiritual Director



Meditation: the way to health & happiness | Lowry Neighborhood of Denver

Saturday, April 8 | 12:30 - 1:45pm

Happiness is a state of mind -- an underlying sense of contentment, fulfillment, and satisfaction. And the truth is that we already have this within us, readily accessible. Although it may be buried beneath layers of thoughts and emotions, through meditation we can tap into it and increase it day by day, until we experience an enduring peace and freedom.


Discovering the wonder of the mind | Boulder
A special public talk & 5 week meditation series

Tuesday, April 11 | 7:00 - 8:15pm

Join us for a public talk and special series of classes with international meditation teacher Kadam Lucy James!

Our mind is our greatest natural resource, but all too often we fail to recognize it for the wonder that it is. We see our mind as limited and relate to it as something fixed or stuck, consequently often feeling trapped in painful states. 


Nyungnay Retreat: A purifying fasting retreat

Saturday, April 15

Nyungnay is a special fasting and purification practice performed in conjunction with prostrations and prayers to Thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. This is a very powerful method for purifying negativity of body, speech, and mind, and for pacifying delusions such as strong attachment and anger. It is also a special way of improving our minds of love, compassion, and receiving the compassionate blessings of Avalokiteshvara.
