5-Day Retreat

Each day, we can clear and cleanse our mind, body, and senses, tuning into natural healing energies. This retreat combines healing practices, relaxation, and meditation with traditional Medicine Buddha prayers, mantra, and visualization for a deep transformative experience. These practices can also help us release deep knots of suffering, including grief, resentment, and loneliness.

Also included are direct, practical teachings from Tarthang’s Rinpoche’s books Caring and Nyingma Psychology series that can help us contact the innate healing energies of body and mind no matter where we go. We are invited to cultivate a fresh attunement and deeper, healing connections with self and others.

In the Buddhist tradition, it is believed that the Medicine Buddha embodies the Buddha's vows to heal beings at the level of ultimate reality, and therefore, simply hearing the Medicine Buddha’s name and his mantra brings forth powerful blessings for the healing of body and mind.

Medicine Buddha practice is for healing and releasing all kinds of accumulated negativity or impurities, including trauma and long-term illnesses. It also works on a subtle level to help cleanse and purify layers of imbalanced emotionality and confusion, removing all sickness, obstacles, traces of negative actions, and obscurations. By practicing and chanting together as a group, we support each other and strengthen the power of our practice. The blessings of this practice can be directed towards yourself; loved ones such as family, friends, or pets; and all beings in need of healing.

Take this opportunity to step out of your usual routines, focus on deepening presence, and to be inspired and supported by the expansive healing vision this practice can offer.
