Emptiness Retreat in Bali

Join us for a life changing retreat on the true nature of reality

in Prana Dewi Mountain Resort • Sept 4-7 2017

A magician creates various things
Such as horses, elephants and so forth.
His creations do not actually exist;
You should know all things in the same way.

In his wisdom teachings, Buddha Shakyamuni reveals the true nature of reality, which opens the door to limitless possibility.

On this retreat we will use wisdom to replace all our unpleasant feelings, anxieties and unhappiness with clear and joyful meditation. We will examine the reality of the world around us and realize that it simply does not exist in the way we think. All our day to day ordinary appearances will then dissolve away, giving rise to a deep inner stillness and happiness.

In New Eight Steps to Happiness Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says in the experience of Emptiness ‘everything becomes very peaceful and comfortable, balanced and harmonious, joyful and wonderful.’

Sitting in this beautiful magical environment with your mind undisturbed by distracting thoughts and focused on the space like true nature of things, all daily problems disappear. Don’t miss this special opportunity!
