Compassion Fasting Retreat

with Gen Kelsang Gomlam

Saturday, April 14 6:30 AM-4:00 PM

This special fasting and purification practice is performed in conjunction with Eleven-faced Avalokiteshvara. It is very powerful for purifying negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and for pacifying strong delusions such as uncontrolled desire and anger. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion, and our supreme good heart. In order to fully engage in this retreat, participants will need to attend the Precepts and Intro session. 

Precepts and Intro:   6:30-8:00 AM

Session 1:                 9:00-10:00 AM

Session 2:                 11:00 AM-12:00 PM

Lunch (Provided):    12:30-2:30 PM

Session 3:                 3:00-4:00 PM

Cost: $30 before April 7, $40 after April 7. Free for KMC Madison FP/GP Members.
