Slowing down, being silent and drawing inwards are vital for mental and spiritual well-being. During this 1/2 day retreat we will put down our phones, computers and normal daily activities to be guided into a space of silence and inspiration.
In this brief meditation retreat, we will combine our breathing with the mental recitation of the mantra OM AH HUM, which is called the “Mantra of all Buddhas.”
What to Expect:
3 Guided Meditation Sessions with light refreshments during the breaks
Cost: $30 | 50% off for Foundation Members | Free for Kadampa and Benefactor Members
Meditating on the OM AH HUM mantra gives us direct and immediate access to a space of power and peace that exists within us. This meditation helps us to see beyond the ordinary and connect with our pure, compassionate nature.
