Huge thanks to everyone who honoured Dorje Ling last weekend with your presence at the Foundations of Mindfulness Meditation Retreat.
There were over 35 participating humans plus 3 wise dogs, including travellers from afar who brought their gifts, and many residents of Quadra and Cortes who billeted visitors and shared their warm island spirit so generously.
Over 35 people (and 3 dogs) converged from all points to bask in Tibetan lama Geshe YongDong's glowing spirit and receive his articulate, powerful teachings. Together we learned, hiked, chanted, meditated, feasted, danced and sang. What a powerful and fun event!
We would like to remind everyone that Dorje Ling is always here for you to drop in any time, to meditate or just relax and simply BE in our peaceful environment. There is no charge. We host "tea and a sit" every Sunday at 2pm. Our rich and eclectic new Reading Library of Buddhist and other material is now available for your pleasure, and is open to receive any books or videos you would like to pass on. And we are open to your ideas or initiative for hosting other workshops, teachings, or gatherings of all sorts.
We also offer hostel-style beds to rent for $15 per night, or camping space for $10/night.
Dorje Ling is a community resource and a gift of love, and we extend our deepest gratitude to you for taking part in our quickly-growing local and global community.
Yours with great respect and best wishes,
Kenny, Ray, Carmen, and the Dorje Ling Sangha
