On Friday evening (11/9), from 7 - 9 pm will be an introduction to Marig Munsel, Dispelling the Darkness of Ignorance, a program created to train western laypeople in the principles and practices of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. The program will be taught by its creator, Lama Bruce Newman, who is presently teaching it at Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche's other three centers. Bruce will present an outline of the material to be covered. The course will be taught on weekends with the scheduling details determined by the participants at the meeting. There is no charge for the Friday evening event. Donations are gratefully accepted.
On Saturday (11/10) Lama Bruce will be leading two sessions of teaching and meditation on the practice of Medicine Buddha, from 10 am - 1 pm and 3 pm - 6 pm. On Sunday (11/11) there will be a single morning session 10 am - 1 pm. The suggested donation for the Medicine Buddha weekend program is $90 for all three sessions, or $35 for individual sessions. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
In this weekend mini-retreat, Lama Bruce will help us uncover our innate capacity for healing. Using Tulku Thondups
book, Boundless Healing, Lama Bruce will guide us through profound meditations of the Medicine Buddha adapted for Westerners which nurture health and liberation. This retreat will benefit anyone interested in healing as a means for self transformation. Previous exposure to Tibetan Buddhism is not necessary. If possible, reviewing Tulku Thondups book ahead of time is recommended.
Lama Bruce Newman completed a four-year retreat under Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, and has 40 years of Kagyu and Nyingma training. Under the auspices of Ven. Gyatrul Rinpoche, he has been a full-time Dharma and meditation teacher for the past 20 years. Lama Bruces Marig Munsel program, a complete Buddhist education offered at four Dharma centers in the USA and Mexico, is now in its 14th year. His candid book, A Beginners Guide to Tibetan Buddhism, has helped many students navigate their way through the Vajrayana path. Dorje Ling
