Fall Retreat: The Five Elements & Serenity Ridge Dialogues with Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

Join us for five very special days with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and special guests.

Our planet is as alive as it is sacred. The five elements of earth, water, fire, air, and space are not just natural resources, but are fundamental aspects of a living universe. The elements exist not only at a gross, physical level, but in many increasingly subtle forms, with distinct qualities and effects. In fact, every experience one can have, from the sensations of one’s physical body, to emotions, to the most fleeting of thoughts, is composed of the interaction of these five elements. Come learn, connect and experience their power for yourself!

This retreat brings something entirely new to Serenity Ridge. In the mornings, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will teach on the Five Elements, with a special emphasis on the cleansing and healing power of the five tsa lung exercises and the Nine Breaths of Purification. In the afternoons he will be joined by Geshe YongDong Losar, from Vancouver Island, Canada, along with researchers and healthcare practitioners of both Eastern and Western medicine. Collectively they will present research, knowledge and their own experiences regarding how connecting to the elements, to the breath, awareness and the body can help us to connect more fully to the joy of life, to heal injury and trauma, and to be more present to each moment.
