72h Prostration Retreat in KBL

72h Prostration Retreat

30.04.-03.05. 2020

Dear Friends,

“A wise man may avoid blood and tears on his way to enlightenment, but there is no way around the sweat. Only conscious and one-pointed meditation creates the cracks in the fortifications of our egos that make mind’s timeless essence shine through. Hard work is unavoidable, especially with the prostrations. This practice creates the good impressions necessary for our growth and changes our body from a difficult master to a useful servant.” Lama Ole Nydahl

We would like to invite you to the 72 hours retreat on the practice of Taking Refuge and Developing the Enlighten Attitude occurring every spring in Karma Berchen Ling Retreat Center in south Greece.

PROGRAM  

In 2020 we will start the program on 30th April, Thursday at 18:30 with a lecture on the practice . The retreat will start at 20:00.

We will finish together the meditation at 20:00 on the 3rd of May, Sunday.

ACCOMODATION

Karma Berchen Ling is located remotely in the mountains of  Peloponnese, a place where one can go deep in the practice in the field of the 9 Stupas.

We will be able to squeeze everybody under a roof, so you need to bring a sleeping bag only. At this time of the year it is possible to sleep in a tent, but can be rather cold during the night.

The friends of KBL
