Lake Arrowhead Away Retreat

In this special weekend away retreat, Gen Rigpa will explain these powerful practices and show how we can integrate taking and giving with a simple breathing meditation. This practice, known as mounting taking and giving upon the breath, gives us a very effective method for experiencing joyful and loving minds throughout our daily life and to make authentic progress in our spiritual training quickly.
