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?

Upcoming Retreats

Making Peace: Reconciliation and Loving Kindness

Bob Stahl and Jan Landry

November 15 - 17, 2019
This will be a weekend intensive training on cultivating mindfulness and compassion based approaches into our lives. This is a hands-on “learning from the inside” experience. As we grow and develop as human beings, we may recognize the importance of relinquishing opinions, grudges, judgments, and resentments through honest mindful reconciliation. This is the path of the heart that leads to deeper wisdom, compassion, and peace. This workshop is eligible for 12 hours of Continuing Education credits.

A Practical Guide to True Happiness: Fall Lam Rim Retreat 2019

Elaine Jackson

December 6 - 15, 2019
Have you been curious about Buddhist practice, but don't know where to begin? Have you attended Buddhist teachings, but don’t know how to meditate on the subjects you’ve studied? This class will be based on the “Stages of the Path” (lamrim) tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and will include lectures, guided meditations, discussion periods, and experiential homework assignments. This class will also teach you the fundamentals of Buddhist meditation, and give you the tools you need both to begin a daily meditation practice and to deal with problems and difficulties once you have started to meditate.
