This event is co-sponsored with our friends at CCN and the Vajrayana Institute, and partnered with The Contemplary.

With the many demands on our time in today’s world, it is all to easy to continue our spiritual practice to brief periods of meditation each day, supplemented by occasional teachings and retreats. But is is difficult for such intermittent dedication to Dharma, interrupted by long periods of mundane activities and concerns, to bring about deep and lasting transformation in our minds and way of life. In his classic text “Transforming Felicity and Adversity into the Spiritual Path” the 19th century Dzogchen master Dodrupchen Tenpey Nyima provides practical instruction for transmuting all of life’s ups and downs into nourishment on the path to enlightenment. During this retreat, Lama Alan Wallace offers an explanation of these teachings, together with guided meditations for putting them into practice.This online meditation retreat had simultaneous translation into Spanish and Portuguese.
