Guru Yoga on the 16th Karmapa is the main practice of our Diamond Way Buddhist centers worldwide. During this Open House event, we will focus on deepening our understanding of this meditation. New friends will have the chance to learn more about our group and experienced practitioners will get detailed explanations on guiding the practice. We will share direct instructions from Lama Ole Nydahl and teachings by the 16th Karmapa on the significance of this profound method.

“Living Buddhism: Deepening Our Practice” is the second in a series of “Living Buddhism” courses in the USA where we aim to put into practice Lama Ole’s wishes that we produce, rather than just consume, Buddhism. It is also the 13th Annual President’s Day Retreat in the Northeast region, located in the near vicinity of the future home of the Northeast Retreat Center. As in the past, friends from all over will come together to focus on meditation practice in the Diamond Way Buddhist tradition, with evening lectures and Q&As.
