Milarepa’s Songs of Realization Retreat 

On-Land or Live Online
with Kristine McCutcheon

February 23 to February 28 

Milarepa’s songs have inspired meditators for a thousand years. That they are still sung and studied now is because they point us to a valid path to realization. This retreat will bring together the elements of study, singing and meditation to develop ‘prajna’ in order to benefit ourselves and others.

This group retreat will include Milarepa Day a celebration of the songs of realization of the Kagyu Gurus of which Milarepa is one. We will also have movement, singing and silence and discussion over the course of 5 days. Instructions will be provided. This is easy and appropriate for beginners and experienced meditators alike.

All are welcome.
