Mar 2 (eve) to Mar 4 (midday), 2018

a Discovering Buddhism retreat

This weekend retreat will provide the practice element of DB module 12: Wisdom of Emptiness, being offered at LMB January-February 2018.

Ideally, participants will have taken DB12 either at an FPMT center or as home study. However, this weekend retreat is open to all who are interested in learning or reviewing the Buddhist topic of emptiness. Some background in lam-rim will help.

Sessions will include an overview of the subject matter, time for quiet meditation, and discussions.
