Love and Compassion - Strategies for Healing both Ourselves and Others


Sun, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM EDT

The Guhyasamaja Buddhist Center

10875 Main Street#Unit 108 Fairfax, VA 22030


Love and Compassion: In Person Retreat at Guhyasamaja Buddhist Center

About this event

When we suffer from any kind of loss we try to recover but often use methods that have a limited ability to heal. Love and Compassion, on the other hand, can be used as strategies and are effective because they are powerful positive forces that can transform the negative energy that results in suffering. Through teachings and guided meditations, participants will learn how to utilize and harness these positive states of mind so that they can be used to heal.


Teacher: Ven. Damchoe

Location: Guhyasamaja Buddhist Center

Registration: For this course to be held we will need a minimum of 7 people to attend in person. To register email [email protected]. Attendance at most/all of the sessions is recommended as participants will receive more benefit.


Please confirm dates by checking the calendar on the website.


Suggested donations: Non-Members $15/class and Members $10/class. No one is turned away for a lack of funds.
