The foundation of Buddhism is refuge in the Three Jewels. Dharma is like medicine that prevents the sufferings of this impure cycle of life. Buddha is like the doctor who gives us this medicine, and Sangha are the nurses who assist us.

During this retreat, we will spend time developing this beautiful mind of refuge, our actual protection from all pain and problems. Through practicing refuge, we gradually build a stable peace in our mind, increase our experience of joy and freedom, and develop the confidence and strength to make authentic spiritual progress.
