21-25 May 2017: Bali Retreat with Lama Marut and Cindy Lee

GOOD-HEART-web-FIN

This annual ASC sponsored Asia retreat will feature yoga, meditation, dharma, relaxation, music, and fun in an idyllic setting in beautiful Bali. The teachings this year at will center on the practice of “lolong,” the ancient Tibetan practice for “developing the good heart.” The text we’ll be using for our discussions, The Seven Points of Mind Training, covers all aspects of a complete spiritual practice: recognizing the problems of an unenlightened life, generating compassion for all living beings, and cultivating intelligence about the true nature of the world and of ourselves. Presented as a series of aphorisms, the text instructs us on how to live a happy life, no matter what the circumstances, with a heart of love and a mind suffused with wisdom.

5-free-email-NEW

About the Retreat

This retreat will guide us toward a deeper connection with our own awakened nature, and will provide us with techniques and practices to help work with the obstacles that obscure our natural wisdom, peace and joy. 

During the retreat, we will be working with the framework and the mandala of the five Dhyani or Wisdom Buddhas. Each Buddha embodies a different aspect of freedom and the awakened mind, and offers wisdom that can help us work with our habitual patterns of anger, jealousy, pride, ignorance and grasping. It is said that each of us has a predisposition to one of these five Buddhas qualities and that studying these characteristics can help us reach our highest potential.

Join us for another transformational retreat with Lama Marut and Cindy Lee​ on peaceful Bintan Island. Retreat schedule will include daily dharma talks, kirtan, yoga and meditation as well as creative activities and plenty of personal time for relaxation and reflection.
