Join Us for October 21 Online Retreat on the Five Elements

According to the ancient Tibetan spiritual traditions, our planet is alive and sacred. The five natural elements—earth, water, fire, air and space—can be considered fundamental aspects of a living universe. All of our experiences, from the sensations of the physical body, to the emotions, to the most fleeting of thoughts, are said to be composed entirely of these five elements in interaction. Join Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche for the Fall Retreat October 23–25  on the topic of “The Five Elements.”

Join Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and special guest Deepak Chopra, along with leading scientists, physicians and practitioners, for a live online summit running October 9–11, featuring deep conversations at the intersection of scientific and spiritual knowledge about body, breath and mind.
