An Online Weekend Retreat With Pema Chödrön

Live On: 09/15/2017 to 09/17/2017
Available Until: 11/16/2017
Pema Chödrön, Tim Olmsted

Pema Chödrön is widely beloved for her insightful, down-to-earth teachings of Tibetan Buddhism for Western audiences. In this weekend retreat, hear for the first time her wisdom teachings coming out of a yearlong sabbatical of contemplation and study.

This is a rare opportunity to experience one of today’s most prominent Buddhist teachers and hear her new insights, conveyed with characteristic warmth, clarity, and humor.

This online retreat includes talks, guided meditations, and question-and-answer sessions with Pema Chödrön. Tim Olmsted guides us in meditation practices that show us how to apply these insightful teachings to our everyday lives. Silence is observed on campus from the end of Friday night’s retreat session until Saturday dinner; online participants are invited to observe silence in their homes as well.

This online retreat is appropriate for professionals as well as beginners, advanced students, and everyone in between.

Want to attend the workshop in person? Join us on Omega's Rhinebeck campus for a deeper immersion.
