Bodhisattva Retreat with Lopon Barbara Du Bois @ Garchen Institute

Lopon Barbara Du Bois leads us in a weekend retreat of teachings and meditation on the essence of our true nature: compassion and love. This retreat is a sanctuary training ground to nourish our bodhisattva seeds. Our training manual is the 37 Bodhisattva Practices. All are welcome! Lopon Barbara’s fresh, energetic teachings have encouraged and guided seekers of all levels for years. She reminds us that we don’t have to be Buddhists to be bodhisattvas and Buddhas.
