We often live unconsciously, lost in thoughts and feelings. In this state we may experience a variety of internal problems such as anxiety, fear or anger. And yet, if we bring awareness into our daily lives we are able to find ways to stop identifying with our mental habits. Then we can experience joy and peace and, eventually, the profound epiphany of dropping into the unconditioned. In this retreat Anam Thubten and Kilung Rinpoche will co-teach, sharing the experience and knowledge of the timeless Buddhist wisdom.
Anam Thubten Rinpoche grew up in Tibet and entered a Tibetan Buddhist monastery as a young boy. He currently resides in Northern Caliifornia and is the founder and spiritual advisor of Dharmata Foundation, teaching widely in the US, Europe and Asia. His many publications include Embracing Each Moment and No Self, No Problem.
Dza Kilung Rinpoche is the head of Kilung Monastery in the Dzachuka region of Kham, Tibet. Since 1999 he has divided his time between Tibet and his US home on Whidbey Island, WA. He directs the Kilung Foundation, which supports education, cultural and humanitarian projects in Tibet. He is the author of Relaxed Mind.
