Vajrasattva Purification Retreat
Everyone wants to be happy all the time, but often our past comes back to obstruct our present happiness. Buddha taught the main obstacle to making progress in the spiritual path is negative karma and the main cause of our suffering is our negative actions from the past. In this retreat, we will remove obstacles from our mind quickly – leaving us refreshed, clean, and happy.
Sat, Jan 30 – Wed, Feb 3
The retreat is suitable for all levels of experience. No previous meditation experience is needed.
There’s nothing more precious to us than our life. Because we have a precious human life, we have the opportunity to experience both temporary and ultimate happiness. We need a long life. If we lose this life, we shall lose the opportunity to practice Dharma and attain liberation and enlightenment.

Love Without Pain
with Rob Kelly
So often it feels like love is as much a source of suffering as it is of happiness. We all wish for good relationships in our lives, but relationships between couples, parents and children, or friends often suffer from misunderstandings, unrealistic expectations and conflict. We love each other, and yet we are not always happy together. This is because we do not understand the real nature of love and how to practically improve our love in our close relationships.
