We all wish for spiritual realizations, but this depends upon many preliminary practices such as purifying negativity, accumulating merit and receiving blessings. In this bi-annual retreat we focus on the preliminary practices of accumulating merit, or positive energy, by making mandala offerings and receiving blessings by engaging in Guru Yoga practice. We will be using the prayers from Offering to the Spiritual Guide.

Sessions will be available on demand to fit your schedule throughout the week.  There are 4 sessions per day.  You may follow the suggested schedule below or adjust based on your needs.  You do not need to attend all of the session to participate.
