FIVE MONTH BUDDHIST MEDITATION IMMERSION
FOR ANYONE SEEKING
🔷A PATH TO INTEGRATE MINDFULNESS AND COMPASSION INTO DAILY LIFE🔷
Starting January 17th 2020, you can join a diverse and inclusive group of students to deepen your meditation practice and study the Buddhist canon in-depth with a supportive online community and the mentorship of Lodro Rinzler. Participate based on your own schedule in an in-depth curriculum that brings the traditional teachings of the Buddha to life and makes them particularly applicable to our modern world.

Anyone who could use some personal guidance from an experienced meditation teacher to help them integrate all of this into their everyday life
People seeking a deep spiritual and transformational path of practice

“For the four years I've been studying with Lodro, he always pushes me towards more compassion and sensitivity for myself and others. In his teaching, Lodro consistently provides the perfect mix of traditional wisdom and contemporary experience, showing that what we think are our oh-so-modern problems are really pretty much the same as the ones humans have always been encountering.” - Sharon

“It's hard to express how much our conversation and your thoughtfulness meant. I came away very inspired.” - Sandi H
