Summer Retreat 2013
2013 Jewel Heart Joyful Summer Retreat

with Gelek Rimpoche

Thursday, July 4 – Sunday, July 14

Jewel Heart, 1129 Oak Valley Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48108

Compassion, the wish to relieve and end suffering, comes to us quite naturally. It is also, however, not at all unusual to find disappointing gaps in our perseverance, and ultimately our motivation, when we are bringing forward our best to be considerate or helpful.

With present day heroes of compassion-in-action like His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the eminent master Gelek Rimpoche, we are very fortunate indeed to have the opportunity to follow their lead, pick up time-honored methods found in Tibetan Buddhism, come to know ourselves and our experiences more clearly, and ultimately enjoy the satisfaction of knowing how to truly be of service.

To take it a step further, through Buddha’s ever pertinent wisdom, we can set our sights on developing the unparalleled, extraordinary compassion that is free to joyfully shine in every direction, impartial and without limit, like the rays of the sun.

We invite you to join Gelek Rimpoche at the 2013 Joyful Summer Retreat teaching Develop Extraordinary Compassion the Tibetan Buddhist Way from July 4th to July 14th at Jewel Heart’s joyful center in beautiful Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The teachings will be offered without charge due to the kindness of sponsors.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for the Summer Retreat, we are looking for additional sponsors in order to meet our target retreat budget. We invite you to contact Jewel Heart Executive Co-Director, Carole Corcoran at
