  • $200.00 – Supporting Tuition

Tibetan medical texts described future degenerate times, where never before seen diseases arise in times of environmental degradation. Universal healing and the Medicine Buddha’s practice included instructions, recipes, and methods for working with such degenerate times. Meditation and emanating the healing energy we all possess is profoundly useful for increasing compassion and insight into our sameness as human beings. This illuminates our enlightened mind, bringing harmony to elements in disharmonious times. Alleviating compassion fatigue is needed more than ever as we suffer as one human race. This practice directly remedies any illness of the body-mind-spirit. Simply hearing Menla’s name or mantra, we penetrate and correct imbalances at the relative and ultimate levels.

This weekend, we practice for ourselves and a world suffering in a global health crisis. All are welcome, beginners and those who have practiced before will benefit from this concentrated healing weekend.


The audio of dharma talks and meditation instruction will be recorded. Participants will be able to download the audio recordings, for their personal use only, within a one-week window after the program concludes.
