Program Details

Summer Weekthun


with Timothy Addison
August 16 / 4:00 PM - August 24 / 11:00 AM

This program has a FREE tuition option! 


A weekthün is a week-long group meditation retreat that provides a precious opportunity to deepen our connection with mindfulness/awareness practice, to self-reflect, and to nurture the contemplative aspects of our life.


The environment of Dorje Denma Ling and the weekthün is the perfect place to deepen and establish (or re-establish) an ongoing meditation practice that will permeate our life.


This weekthün takes place along with our annual Family Camp, an intergenerational summer gathering. People of all ages will come together to practice, play, and create enlightened society. Family Camp attendees will join the weekthün for morning chants. For more information on Family Camp, click here.
