The Power of Kindness

with Christine Heming

August 18 – 20

When asked what is the most effective way to transform your life -writer, philosopher and humanist Aldous Huxley said: “Just be a little kinder.”

One of the essential teachings of renowned meditation master and founder of Shambhala, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, is: “Be kind.”

When asked about his religion, the Dali Lama replied: “My religion is kindness.”

During this weekend retreat, we will discover the transformative power of kindness, and the way we can bring that power into our daily life. This retreat is open to everyone; no prior experience with meditation is necessary.
