“Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. We all wish for world peace, but world peace will never be achieved unless we first establish peace within our own minds." ~ Ven Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

About this Event

If you don’t have time to come to the whole retreat, no worries — it is still very much worth it to come to a  single day, a half day, or even a single session. 

All of us know what it feels like to deal with circumstances and worries that drag us down and wear us out. Nowadays we may feel that peace is hard to find. We see war, we worry about those we love, we may be dealing with financial struggles, our minds and our relationships are feeling the strain of everyday life. In the midst of all this, we can find solace and freedom by embarking on the path to peace – and this is not as difficult as you may think!

“All the happiness there is in this world arises from wishing others to be happy.” ~ Shantideva (AD 687-763)

The path to inner and outer peace begins with finding balance and peace for ourselves because we can't bring happiness to others if we aren't happy ourselves. From there we can learn to love more unconditionally -- and with growing acceptance, understanding, and empathy we become more and more resilient. By bringing the path of peace into our lives, we will bring about positive change in our spheres of influence, which are our families, our friend circles, and the groups and communities with which we are connected.  

On this weekend retreat, Gen Menla and Kadam Lucy will be giving talks and guided meditations that draw upon one of the most special practices within Buddhism, called “equalizing and exchanging self with others” – key insights that can unlock the door to deep personal peace and help us become a brighter light in the world.
