Shower of Blessings Daylong Meditation Retreat

Please register for only one of the formats: Online or In-Person.

Update: The limited seats for In-Person participation are currently full so we encourage you to register to attend the retreat Online.

Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will be leading a Shower of Blessings Daylong Meditation Retreat which will include teachings on the practice as well as guided meditation.

In this rich and transformative form of meditation, instead of focusing on an ordinary object of our attention such as the breath, we focus on extraordinary objects by visualizing enlightened art, reciting enlightened poetry and mantras, and cultivating extraordinary attitudes. This meditation, based on the Seven-Line Prayer of Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava, combines focusing on these enlightened objects of attention with the practice of resting in Pristine Mind.
