Thanksgiving - Medicine Buddha Practice

  • Saturday, November 28, 2020 - Monday, November 30, 2020
Medicine Buddha Online Retreat

This Thanksgiving The Healing Buddha Foundation Presents
A Special Online Retreat with Phakyab Rinpoche

Since sharing a meal with friends and loved ones may not be the safest way to celebrate this year. We invite you to join us for a unique public online event with the practice of Sangye Menla, the Medicine Buddha. From the safe environment of your home, this practice will offer an opportunity to uplift your heart and benefit others.

During these extraordinary and uncertain times, this therapeutic practice enables us to awaken healing in ourselves, cultivate strong selfless compassion and relieve mental health challenges on a global scale.

The Medicine Buddha practice rebalances the body and the spirit, altering emotional disturbances, purifying negative karma guiding us towards the path of inner and outer healing setting the stage for compassion and altruism.

Whatever your religion or spiritual beliefs, this practice will plant the seeds of love and healing within you.

About Phakyab Rinpoche. Born in 1966 in Tibet, ordained as a monk at the age of 13. In 1994 he was recognized by the XIV Dalai Lama as the eighth rebirth of Phakyab Rinpoche. When faced with severe health problems that required the amputation of one of his legs, he consulted with the Dalai Lama, who encouraged him to rely on spiritual practices and faith to heal himself, "You will teach the world how to heal," HH told him. From this experience, Rinpoche wrote his book; Meditation Saved My Life. Currently living in New York and teaching worldwide, he is The Spiritual Leader for The Healing Buddha Foundation. The Foundation houses and educates young Tibetan children while supporting Tibetan single mothers through their sponsorship program. As a member of the Gelugpa order of Tibetan Buddhism, Rinpoche teaches spiritual healing throughout the United States, France, and the world.

  • This retreat is open to everyone.
  • Teachings are in Tibetan, with simultaneous translations into English and Spanish.
  • No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Contact us.
  • It is extremely important to understand that the Medicine Buddha practice is by no means a substitute for medicine; however, as it purifies us and develops our inner strength, it helps to strengthen our immune system.
