Lamrim Saturday: Meditation Practice Day

9:00 am Saturday, April 13, 2019

Spend a day focusing on core meditation practices that are ideal for incorporating into your daily practice. The day will be divided into six 35-minute sessions with breaks and lunch.

To enable participants to keep focus and concentration, this mini-retreat will be silent other than guided meditations and essential communication. Sessions will consist of information on the topic presented by the facilitator, motivation, meditation on the topic, and dedication. To maintain a stable and peaceful retreat environment, participants should commit to attending the entire day if at all possible.

Meditations: Breathing, Clarity of the Mind, Precious Human Life, Purification, Impermanence, and Meditation on the Buddha.

Please bring food for your day such as snacks and lunch. Registration Requested. Click here to register.

About lam rim: The presentation of Buddha’s 84,000 teachings into a step-by-step method is known as “lam-rim” in Tibetan and can be translated as “graduated path.” Indian and Tibetan masters have offered short texts, prayers, commentaries and extensive texts with instruction, all based on this approach. 

Note about DB: If you are working on the requirements for completing the DB Practice Retreats, these meditations are required for How to Meditate module. Please be aware that these mediations will be guided by a fellow student and not an FPMT teacher, so for DB purposes, your approach is similar to if you were preparing for and practicing independently. However, we offer this opportunity in the center’s spiritual setting with other students with the hope that you find the environment beneficial and to cultivate a supportive environment in which we all practice. Chairs and cushions are available for your seating/meditation comfort. You are welcome to bring along your favorite cushion, if desired. Arrive early enough to get settled in.
