2024 Shravasti Retreat in Maine

Please join us for HH Drikung Chetsang Rinpoche’s dynamic, newly expanded meditation curriculum: Shravasti Meditation Retreat! This is the first time the full curriculum will be offered in North America.

Sept 15 – Sept 24, 2024 Pilgrim Lodge, West Gardiner, Maine

The Shravasti curriculum integrates the traditional Buddhist fundamentals of Calm Abiding and Insight Meditation, commentary from both ancient scriptures and Kagyu Masters, ancient yogic practices of somatic learning and walking meditation. It is for new and continuing students, with key instructions for all practitioners to clarify and deepen their practice.

Mindful walking

The 10-day curriculum is designed to offer each student the rare opportunity to deepen familiar practices of concentration and compassion and develop new levels of understanding through Khenmo’s instruction and concentrated times for sitting, walking, eating, and resting meditation.

“Through extensive meditation training and holding silent contemplation throughout the day, our undistracted minds reveal their natural warmth and wisdom. We move gradually from states of confusion to inherent wisdom. You may not fully understand all of the subtle levels of meditation instructions at first, but if you commit to fully engaging with your heart and mind, you will set into motion a life-long path of practice that has the potential to expand as you grow in understanding.” Khenmo Drolma
