Weekend Buckhorn Retreat - Inner Yogas

Inner Yogas 

Fri. Oct. 25, 6pm, – Mon. Oct. 28, 1 pm 

In the mid-1970s, His Eminence Kalu Rinpoche wrote a concise root text presenting a sequence of physical yogas to support the synchronization of body, speech and mind in meditation practice. These dynamic exercises, and the essential Buddhist teachings upon which they are based, will be presented as a weekend retreat led by Lama Pema and Lama Yeshe, assisted by Dharma Instructor Libba Coker. The yogas can be of benefit to anyone, as they promote a sense of well-being and harmony in one’s daily life. 

Tuition: $376 for meals and lodging (double occupancy) or $481 for single, plus dana offering for the teaching. 

Work exchange ($316) and scholarships may be available. Registration: retreats@kscashland.org.

Tim Olmsted Event - Beyond Hope and Fear - Becoming Fully Human Along the Path to Freedom

to Nov 3

Tim Olmsted Event - Beyond Hope and Fear - Becoming Fully Human Along the Path to Freedom

Beyond Hope and Fear - Becoming Fully Human Along the Path to Freedom

With Senior Tergar Instructor Tim Olmsted 

Fri. Nov. 1 (7 – 8:30 pm), Sat. Nov. 2 (9 am – noon and 2 – 6 pm), Sun. Nov. 3 (9 – noon and 1 – 5 pm) 

At the heart of everything we do is the desire to experience the happiness and ease that we imagine to be possible. Yet, in our day-to-day experience our mind and our heart seem unreliable and uncooperative. During this weekend retreat, we’ll explore the uplifting and empowering message of the Buddha, that the essential nature of any experience we might have, however difficult or confusing, is a wisdom that is open and compassionately connected to the world. We’ll discover how to use the energy and richness of life, our thoughts and emotions, our hopes and fears, and our work and relationships as the foundation for the journey to awakening. We’ll learn to bring all of life’s experience to path – as the basis for inner peace and equanimity, as a source of radiant compassion, and finally, as brilliant wisdom.

This weekend program is open to anyone interesting transforming their heart and mind, experienced meditators and those who are just starting out. 

Tim Olmsted has been a student of meditation for the past 40 years. For twelve of those years, Tim lived in Nepal and worked as a psychotherapist. There he studied with many of the greatest Buddhist teachers of our time, including Mingyur Rinpoche’s father, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche. After returning from Nepal, Tim founded the Yongey Foundation to support Mingyur Rinpoche’s activities in Asia. Tim served as director of Gampo Abbey, a monastery in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. He is the founder and president of the Pema Chödrön Foundation.

Tuition: $135 [limited income– $100). Fee includes dana offering for the teacher.

EUGENE TEACHING WEEKEND: CULTIVATING FEARLESSNESS 

EUGENE TEACHING WEEKEND: CULTIVATING FEARLESSNESS 

A Weekend Retreat with Lama Pema and Lama Yeshe 

Sat. & Sun. Nov. 9 – 10, 10 am – noon & 2 – 4 pm 

In this weekend retreat of teaching, meditation and discussion, we will examine the underlying nature of our fears and habits. This investigation can lead us beyond our usual experiences of limitation and repetition, to expand our sensitivity, responsiveness and choice in every moment. 

Encouraging the life attitudes of loving kindness, compassion, fearlessness and mindfulness, we can strengthen our heart and mind toward expanded possibilities, so that the way we live our lives every day will naturally result in a state of mind that is equal to the challenges of this life, including the inevitable losses of what we hold dear. 

Suggested donation: $120 for the weekend. No preregistration.
