an opportunity to go deeper...
Sometimes it is helpful to do a meditation retreat. This can just be one day, or a weekend, or longer if you have the time. On retreat we stop all forms of business and extraneous activities in order to emphasize a particular spiritual practice. New Kadampa Tradition Centers worldwide take January as an opportunity to engage in retreat. Join us at KMC Arizona for one or all of the retreats we are offering.
Introduction with Kelsang Dechok
Friday, January 12 | 6:30-8pm
Vajrasattva is the Buddha of purification. During this retreat we have the opportunity to purify our negativity by engaging in the purification practices of Buddha Vajrasattva. Through this practice we can remove both the causes of our future suffering and obstacles to our spiritual practice. We will do this retreat in conjunction with the prayers "Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra."

Mahamudra Tantra Retreat
Friday - Sunday, January 26-28
Introduction with Gen Lingpur
Friday, January 26 | 6:30-8pm
Mahamudra is the union of great bliss and emptiness – the most subtle mind that experiences great bliss and realizes ultimate truth, the way things actually exist. Through meditation we can uncover and purify the deepest level of our mind and use this very subtle blissful mind to meditate on ultimate truth, destroy all our negative minds at their very root and quickly reach the state of full enlightenment. We will do this retreat in conjunction with the prayers "Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra."
