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.

For more information on this retreat, please contact Ryan at 860.874.1970.
