Life is But a Dream: Meditations on the Way Things Really Are

Saturday Meditation Retreat

In this three-session retreat, through teachings and meditations, Gen Kelsang Gomlam will explain the true nature of reality, helping us to gain practical insight into how our mind is related to our experience of our world.
