“The essence of Buddhism is what is real;
what is real is what we practice and what is in our hearts.”
Be with what many have come to experience in the presence, practice and teachings of Anyen Rinpoche, during this 4 day Vermont retreat, May 1 – 4.
Seeds of Dharma germinate, grow, and flower in the light and example of this authentic teacher!
Anyen Rinpoche will be accompanied by his long time translator, co-author, and wife Allison Choying Zangmo. Collaborations include The Tibetan Yoga of Breath and Dying with Confidence.
Rinpoche hopes that many students will gather to practice with him. This retreat is his only Eastern US teaching this spring, and perhaps for the year.
