Mid-year Mahamudra Retreat Registration & Payment

This year's June retreat at the Tibetan Buddhist Society (Melbourne) will be 6.5 days on the topic of mahamudra. The retreat will be led by Les Sheehy, a student of the Society's founder Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden since 1976, and resident teacher of the TBS Perth centre.

The first session of the retreat will be at 7am on Saturday 10 June, and the final session at 11.30 am on Friday 16 June, followed by lunch. The cost for the whole retreat staying onsite is $764. The cost for attending online is $312. Full information is provided below when you choose an option (there is no need to save the form to see the information).

The mahamudra retreat is suitable for all students, although you will find it beneficial to have completed some study of the Path to Enlightenment. The content will be drawn from Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden's Great Treasury of Mahamudra.

Each day's teachings and meditations will draw on the learning of prior days; therefore it will not possible to opt in for irregular days or commence after Sunday 11 June. If you have any queries, please write to Events@tushita.org
