Reflections in The Mirror of Dharma

Escape to

KMC Arizona & KMC Phoenix

March 26 - 29

This retreat will be based on the liberating insights into reality from Venerable Geshe Keslang Gyatso Rinpoche's latest book, The Mirror of Dharma. By meditating on Buddha's teachings on reality, or emptiness, we can learn to free ourselves from our most stubborn bad habits, practically benefit others and immerse ourselves in a state of lasting peace.   This retreat will be a meaningful vacation from the distractions of daily life at the newly developed temple for world peace in Willams Arizona.


Each session will include a brief teaching, preparatory prayers and a guided meditation.
