Fall Weekend Retreat 2014
Cancelled - 2014 Jewel Heart Fall Retreat with Gelek Rimpoche

Memorial Day

Friday, October 10 – Monday, October 13, 2014

Held at Garrison Institute
c/o Glenclyffe 14 Mary’s Way, Route 9D
Garrison, New York 10524

Open to the Public

The gentle humility of Tibetan Buddhist master Gelek Rimpoche shines through when you read the closing passage introducing his first book, Good Life, Good Death – “What I have learned may help you ease your pain, relax your anxieties, reduce your anger, reduce your attachment, and build a little wisdom. It is nothing that you don’t already know. I say it to remind you and to remind myself that within each of us we have every solution to our problems.”

Trained from early childhood by the greatest Tibetan Buddhist masters in “Old Tibet” and living in the West for more than 4 decades places Gelek Rimpoche in a unique position to share the wisdom and compassion of Buddha’s message, guiding us through the many opportunities our lives hold for positive change within ourselves and the world around us.

You are warmly invited to join Gelek Rimpoche this weekend and experience his inspirational teachings amid Garrison Institute’s autumn setting, an environment offering lodging and grounds steeped in a long history of care and contemplation.

This weekend is open to all, with no previous background necessary; those who are new are especially welcome.
