June Dharma Weekends
June Dharma Weekends are an opportunity explore the Buddha’s teachings amidst the summertime beauty of our retreat lands. Each weekend, we will be offering an introduction to meditation, teachings on developing compassion, and guest lectures on a variety of topics. Participants will have access to all of these offerings, as well as the freedom to enjoy the abundant of peace and natural beauty at Gomde—a perfect setting to deepen your personal experience.
Fridays are arrival days, with dinner included. On Saturdays, there will be an introduction to meditation class with Lama Kunzang Drolma, a guest lecture from an experience community member, and authentic teachings on developing compassion from Lama Tsultrim Sangpo. Visitors are welcome to join these events as they feel comfortable, and are otherwise encouraged to enjoy the peace of the land. Sundays breakfast and lunch are provided as well.
You are welcome to either come as a day visitor or to stay overnight in our campground, with the option to rent one of our Tent Cabins or bring your own camping gear. All meals are included.
