Please join us from March 29 to March 31 for a weekend retreat with friend and teacher Sara Finnerty. We will honor the life and teachings of our teacher Hannah Nydahl, who left for the pure lands 12 years ago. Hannah’s wisdom, kindness and compassion is timeless, beyond coming and going. Her example continuously blesses the growth of Diamond Way and blesses our practice. After Hannah’s passing, Lama Ole Nydahl released a collection of her teachings given in Copenhagen in 2001. “View, Meditation and Action” gives us the foundational teachings needed to fully accomplish the Diamond Way. Our weekend together will delve into these three essential topics.
