In this weekend retreat, Lama Bruce will help us uncover our innate capacity for healing. Using Tulku Thondup’s book, Boundless Healing, Lama Bruce will guide us through profound meditations on the Medicine Buddha to embrace physical and mental healing as the gateway to genuine liberation. These meditations progress sequentially, such that we increasingly experience warmth, healing light, and bliss streaming from the Medicine Buddha into our very cells.
There are no pre-requisites for this retreat, and no previous familiarity with Tibetan Buddhism is necessary to learn this healing practice. However, reviewing the book ahead of time is recommended.
