Join Venerable Thubten Chodron at Sravasti Abbey's annual one-week retreat to meditate on White Tara, female manifestation of Buddha’s compassionate wisdom. White Tara’s specialty is long life, which she bestows by helping to purify the negative karma that causes disease and untimely death. The retreat includes daily teachings by Venerable Thubten Chodron on the practice and Buddhist principles, guided and silent meditation, and facilitated discussions. Outside of discussion times, we will keep noble silence. The retreat is suitable for those new to Buddhism as well as more experienced practitioners.
