Daylong Retreat with Gus Cutz: Presenting the Path
Unique to Tibetan Buddhism is its great tradition of lamrim texts, which completely lay out the stages on the path to enlightenment. The first of these beloved texts appeared in the 11th century, and contemporary commentaries from wise teachers are still being published today. In all this time, not much has changed about the roadmap to enlightenment: a practitioner who follows these steps in sequence will definitely achieve this ultimate goal!
Join Gus Cutz for a daylong retreat where you will learn about the graduated stages on the path and the logic behind their sequence, and experience meditations on these stages. Engaging in the lamrim tradition is the perfect way to explore how Buddhist philosophy, teachings, and your own meditation practice fit together.
This retreat is the culminating event for Discovering Buddhism: Presenting the Path, though all are welcome to join.
