Fri Night Intro, Dec. 4 & Sat, Dec. 5

Online streamed event | Available for streaming all week.

In this day retreat, experience a guided powerful purification practice called the four opponent powers.

These four powers were taught by Buddha to remove negative karma from the mind. By engaging in this practice, we can help heal our mind from negativity and gain a clear, more positive state of mind.

This retreat is perfect for those who are new to purification practice and more experienced practitioners interested in deepening their practice.
