Karma Thegsum Chöling (San Diego) is very happy to once again welcome Lama Kathy Wesley for a special weekend teaching November 13-16, 2014.

Lama Kathy Wesley (Lama Gyurme Chötsö) has been a student of Ven. Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche since 1977. She participated in the first three-year retreat led by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche at Karme Ling Retreat Center in upstate New York, and thus earned the title of ‘retreat lama.’

She is a graduate of Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and lives in Newark, Ohio with her husband, Michael. She is also on the Board of Trustees of Karma Triyana Darmachakra (KTD), the North American seat of His Holiness, the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

Public Talk:

Walking with the Buddha: The Noble Path to Liberation

Reading the teachings of the Buddha can be inspiring: learning the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths (that suffering is part of life, that fixation is the cause of suffering, that suffering can be resolved and there is a path that leads to the end of suffering) can help us feel hopeful about our lives. But how do we practice? How do we recognize causes of suffering in our lives, and how do we learn to let them go?

This teaching will review the Buddha’s Eightfold Noble Path and how we can enact right conduct and mindfulness in our everyday lives.
NO REGISTRATION REQUESTED

Friday, November 14: 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Weekend Seminar – Becoming Medicine Buddha

According to the teachings of the Buddha, every being possesses the potential for awakening — the Buddha nature. One way to actualize this nature is through the practice of Vajrayana (tantra) Sadhana practices. By identifying with a pure form that symbolizes our basic nature, we can cut through confusion and bewilderment and develop our awakened potential. Basic sitting meditation and the visualization practice of the Medicine Buddha will be reviewed in this weekend program.
