Healing the Mind - Post Fall Festival Retreat with Gen Dornying

An event to celebrate the work of the International Temples Project

One Day Retreat Online and In-Person |  Saturday 7 Nov

When the world is pervaded by problems, one of the most important practices is Medicine Buddha – a Buddha doctor who shows us how to heal sickness of body and mind. 

It’s said that those who rely on Medicine Buddha are protected from many dangers and obstacles, and can find release from the internal pain of attachment, anger and ignorance.

Learn how to do this at a one-day retreat based on teachings from the NKT-IKBU International Fall Festival 2020.

Everyone is welcome to take part in this perfect practice for our time. 

(You don’t need any special equipment to do the retreat from home – just a comfortable seat and a device to watch the live stream.)
