Teaching Programme

Retreat Wellington

21 – 23 June 2019



Date: Friday 21st; Saturday 22nd; Sunday 23rd June. The first session will begin at 7pm on Friday night and the retreat will end at midday Sunday.

Venue:   Home of Compassion, Island Bay

Topic: We are looking at the practices of the medium scope or intermediate being without which our bodhicitta or great scope practice is very limited. It is essential to look at the common sufferings all beings undergo in samsara in order to develop our great compassion.

 Text: Pabongka Rinpoche’s text “Liberation In The Palm Of Your Hand” is a good text to familiarize yourself with before the retreat, particularly the medium scope chapter. This contains detail on the general sufferings of samsara, those of higher rebirths and the causes of samsara.

Cost: $200 for a single room and $120 for a shared room.   We have kept costs to a minimum so it is affordable for all. All meals and accommodation are included in this cost.

You can begin to pay your amount in instalments if that would be easier for you. Or you can pay in a lump sum. The bank account is: 01-0504-0030799-000.   Please display your name each time you make a deposit so we can keep track of your payments.

As always it will be a great retreat from which we can learn so much.   Please let TGPL know as soon as you can if you are coming.
