Wonderful way to start your day! Brief Recitation, Heart Sutra, Calm Abiding Meditation and special Green Tara practice for epidemics. we use the VDN Prayer Book . Tara embodies the activity of compassion, and sometimes appears as a lady dressed in medicinal herbs as the protector from contagious diseases and fevers. The Drikung Tara’s profound practice for times of epidemics has become of treasure of our morning.

July 9th 1-4 Goronson Farm Meditation

Join Khenmo Drolma as she leads outdoor meditation designed to experience our deep connection to the Earth.  Come for an afternoon to be immersed in Earth’s joy, wonder, vulnerability and resilience at the beautiful Goronson Farm in Scarborough, Maine.

Our time together includes Khenmo’s Dharma talk, guided meditation, and walking meditation through the Mirror Baltic Labyrinth. Guests will enjoy small bites made by Goronson Farm’s very own Chef Alex using the farms’ free-range, pastured eggs, and certified organic fruit & produce.

Beginning with a short tour of the farm, we will then gather for a guided meditation on our interconnection with all of life. Continuing after a tea and snacks Khenmo will lead walking meditation. Afterwards, guest will be encouraged to contemplatively wander and explore the farm—enjoying the terrace, meditation spaces, orchard, vineyards and rare breed ducks and chickens.  

Introduction to a culture of generosity:
Buddhist monastics present the Dharma in the context of Dana, or generosity. The suggested donations allow participants to contribute at a level that meets their personal financial situation. This is an expression of trust that the generosity of the teachers and organizations creating programs are met in appreciation and support by the recipients.

August 27th, 3-5 pm Silent Sail on the Schooner Alert

Bailey Island, Maine

The gliding, quiet movement of sailing is nourishing and calming; the water element itself can be a basis to generate compassion through our interconnection. Khenmo will lead a series of sea contemplations to cultivate mindfulness and the penetrating moisture of Bodhicitta.
