A Day of Purification


TIME:  9:00 AM – 4:30 PM 

COST:  Donations are appreciated

Please join us for a special fasting and purification retreat, which is done in conjunction with the Buddha of Compassion spiritual practice.  Through fasting, we can understand the sufferings of others, increase our compassion for them, and purify our own negative karma.

10:15 am – Session 1
11:45 am – Session 2
12:45 pm – Lunch break 
2:00 pm – Session 3

* Please note that in order to take the vows necessary to participate in this retreat, participants must attend the 9:00 am session.  Since this practice includes fasting, participants are asked to refrain from eating breakfast, dinner, or anytime except lunch.  Please bring a packed vegetarian (no meat) lunch with you to the event.
