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.

Understanding Yourself with the Wisdom of the Five Buddha Families

ratnasambhava-akshobhya-vairochana-amitabha-amoghasiddhi-5-dhyani-buddhas
The Five Dhyani or Wisdom Buddhas represent five aspects of an fully realised mind. Each Buddha embodies a different kind of wisdom and this wisdom can be used to help us work on a particular habitual pattern such as anger, jealousy, pride, ignorance or grasping.
In this talk, we will get to know the five Dhyani Buddhas, find out which of their energies are stronger in us and which ones we need to develop. We will also start thinking about how we can start nurturing and balancing the five types of wisdom in our lives.
This talk is will be given by Jaki Fisher, and is based on a seminar given by Fleet Maull of the Shambala tradition, as well as on Roshi Bernie Glassman’s book, Instructions to the Cook.
