Finding Refuge in the Higher Power Within

with Lama Daniela and Lama Christopher

Registration page

We all have the capacity to realize our innate goodness in every moment. Even so, at times peace can seem elusive in the stormy waves of our habit-driven, addictive cravings and reactive dislikes.

The timeless Buddhist practice of Taking Refuge offers a path through which to free ourselves from the powerful habit patterns that drive us. This natural wisdom directs us back to our radiant Buddha nature, the higher power within.

This retreat will introduce, guide and explore the astute and accessible practices of outer, inner and ultimate refuge. These teachings offer direct access to peace, freedom and well-being, bringing our lives back into the balance we all long for.

The retreat will include user-friendly teachings, guided meditations and lively Q&A sessions with the Lamas and with experienced practitioner Tanya McCrory. This event is appropriate for spiritual exploration at any level of experience.

Lama Daniela and Lama Christopher are both Lineage Holders in the Dzogchen (Natural Great Completeness) tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. For twenty years, they have each practiced and studied intensively under the guidance of their root teacher, Lama Surya Das, as well as other accomplished masters, Himalayan and Western. Besides completing numerous extended silent meditation retreats, they have been teaching for more than ten years and were ordained as Lamas in 2015. In addition to their commitment to the authentic and accessible transmission of these timeless wisdom teachings both locally and nationally, they are also both joyful parents and have each enjoyed life-long professional careers.
