Chenrezik Retreat
Study and Practice of the Sadhana

led by Acharya Choying Gyurmey

Suggested donation: $10 per day; $20 for the 2 days; Members $15.

Chenrezik, embodying the supreme compassion and loving kindness of all the Buddhas, manifests through activities of bodhicitta. Even just the pure force of the mantra in this Practice can benefit all sentient beings, especially important in these degenerate times of greed, desire, fear and negativity. The world is facing difficult times and with this retreat we aspire to generate greater awareness of the interconnectedness among all sentient beings, as well as with nature. Acharya will guide participants in the visualization and ritual of this Practice. Q & A will be included.

On each of the 2 days, from 9:30 to 10 a.m., Acharya will teach on:

  • Who is Chenrezik
  • Description of the visualization
  • Why do we do this practice 
  • The benefits of this practice 

During each of the other sessions, Acharya will give instructions and guide us in this practice. Acharya teaches in English. There will be translation into French. We will share the text of the sadhana on the screen.

The Four Dharmas of Gampopa
Teachings by the Venerable Drupon Khenpo Lodro Namgyal


DRUPON KHENPO LODRO NAMGYAL has a combination of immense learning and intensive meditation that is clearly evident in his teachings. His way of making even the most complex and subtle Dharma subjects immediately accessible to students is a constant inspiration to all.


  • Pray grant the blessing that mind turns to Dharma
  • Pray grant the blessing that Dharma becomes the path
  • Pray grant the blessing that the path dispels delusion
  • Pray grant the blessing that delusion arises as wisdom

A profound and concise description of the full scope of the path from confusion to enlightenment, the Four Dharmas of Gampopa are a valued treasure of the Karma Kagyu lineage.
