Some great masters understood Buddha Nature as a seed to be nurtured and some believed Buddha Nature as being fully developed within the individual. Demo Rinpoche will explore the topic of Buddha Nature, or the seed of buddhahood. There are many examples of Buddha Nature in well-known teachings, including the Uttaratantra (Sublime Continuum) and The Ornament of Mahayana Sutras. Exploring Buddha Nature deepens our understanding of enlightenment and widens the view of Buddha’s Dharma.
In addition to Demo Rinpoche’s teachings, there will be panel discussions each afternoon. The topics will include:
Onsite Social Activities (* and online)
This year, as in the past, a tent will be provided for the teachings and gatherings as weather permits.

This Summer Retreat will conclude with a White Tara Longevity Initiation and a party celebrating Jewel Heart’s 35th Anniversary.
