Over a quarter of a century ago, at the request of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, Menlha Center opened its doors. Gen Kelsang Norden was asked to be the Resident Teacher.

We are excited to welcome back Menlha Center's founding teacher, Gen Norden (Resident Teacher at KMC Georgia) as we celebrate 25 years in the Lambertville community.

 

She will give a teaching taken from the NKT International Fall Festival 2022 entitled: LIFE IS BUT A DREAM: Finding everyday meaning and inspiration in Buddha's wisdom teachings.

 

Everyone welcome. This special 25 year celebration is open for all to attend.

DAY RETREAT:

The Healing Practice of Taking & Giving
with Gen Kelsang Chogyop


Saturday, November 12

In-person only
Time: 10 am – 2:30 pm


Everyone welcome.

$40 (includes snacks & lunch)

Free for Tier 3 & 4 members

50% discount for Tier 1 & 2 members

During this inspiring day retreat, we will be learning the meditations on taking others' suffering and giving happiness, with practical teachings and straightforward guided meditations suited for beginners and more experienced practitioners alike.

The Buddhist meditation practice of taking and giving is one of the most powerful methods for opening our hearts and for healing mental and physical illness. This ancient healing technique has the power to improve mental peace and happiness, and is especially beneficial in situations where we may feel powerless to help others or to overcome adversity.  When we purify our mind through this practice, every spiritual realization will grow easily in our mind. 

 

Everyone welcome. This special retreat is perfect for all.

"WHEN THE TURBULENCE OF DISTRACTING THOUGHTS SUBSIDES AND OUR MIND BECOMES STILL, A DEEP HAPPINESS AND CONTENTMENT NATURALLY ARISE
FROM WITHIN."
