Anam Thubten Retreat March 24-26



When the heart and mind awaken, we have the potential to recognize the Buddha within each of us and to commit to live more intentionally in the world.

In the gentle process of this meditation retreat, held during the Christian Holy Week, Tibetan Buddhist Teacher Anam Thubten makes the connection between the essential Buddhist practices of meditation, loving kindness, no self, emptiness, and devotion, and living the engaged and compassionate way of the Bodhisattva. The great witness of the life and death of Jesus Christ provides an important thread woven into this retreat’s process.

Embodying Compassion in Sacred and Challenging Times provides a focused atmosphere to journey inside oneself to awaken innate wisdom and courage so as to more fully embody compassion.

You are warmly invited to experience Anam Thubten’s teachings during this third visit to Louisville. Come, learn and open your heart to an added dimension for your inward and outward journey. Seekers of all religious traditions are welcome.

Cost: $195, Early Bird Discount: $165 by February 29
