Legacy Circle

What is the Wisdom Culture Legacy Circle?

The Wisdom Culture Legacy Circle is an important new initiative created by Vajrapani Board Members and former Executive Director Fabienne Pradelle. The goal of the Legacy Circle is to protect the retreat environment and land of Vajrapani for many years to come by bringing together a group of people who choose to make a long-term commitment to Vajrapani. If you also believe that retreat centers are vital for meditators to grow in their practice and realizations, a Legacy Circle commitment could be your way to ensure future generations will get the support they need to grow.

 

What kind of commitments do you have in mind?

It depends on you. For some people it may be prayer commitments as recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche specifically for Vajrapani Institute’s Wisdom Culture Legacy Circle.

 

What’s your Gift Acceptance Policy?

Vajrapani Institute’s Gift Acceptance Policy outlines the guidelines involved in the gift process as well as the standards we uphold to evaluate various kinds of gifts for acceptance. You can review our Gift Acceptance Policy here.

Upcoming Retreats

Cultivating Emotional Balance

Lani Potts and Dave Smith

September 24 - 29, 2019
The Cultivating Emotional Balance training was sparked during a meeting between behavioral scientists, a neuroscientist, a monk, a philosopher, and the Dalai Lama in 2000, as a new approach to understanding our emotional lives. Combining contemporary scientific research with contemplative practices drawn from Buddhism, the Cultivating Emotional Balance training gives participants new tools for working with emotion. CE credits for psychologists are provided by the Spiritual Competency Resource Center (SCRC) which is co-sponsoring this program.

Chenrezig Inititation with Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa (Initiation Only)

Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa

October 18 - 19, 2019
Avalokitesvara or Chenrezig is renowned as the embodiment of the compassion of all the Buddhas. The four arms and hands signify the four immeasurables: immeasurable loving kindness, immeasurable compassion, immeasurable joy, and immeasurable equanimity. The four immeasurables are the vehicles through which Chenrezig benefits beings. By receiving the Chenrezig initiation and practicing this sadhana we can gradually awaken our own awareness of those same qualities in ourselves.
