About the Retreat

You are invited to join Kadam Lucy for a 3-week summer meditation retreat at the IKRC Grand Canyon. During this retreat, Kadam Lucy will guide meditations and give teachings on the unmistaken Dharma of Lamrim, Lojong and Mahamudra. 

This retreat is suitable for meditators of all levels and is a perfect and meaningful way to spend our summer break.

In the first week of retreat, we will explore the entire path to enlightenment through the Lamrim or Stages of the Path, which includes all of the 84,000 teachings that Buddha gave. In the second week, we will dive deep into the teachings of Lojong, "Training The Mind" on how to transform adversity and maintain a peaceful and happy mind all the time. In the final week, we will be guided through a series of teachings on the mind and how through meditating on its clarity, we will find a lasting source of inner peace.

Week 2: July 8-14 | Transforming Adversity - Lojong

Week 3: July 15 - 21 | A Blissful, Clear Mind - Mahamudra
