Four-year Program: Fall 2015

Mentor-Bonding: Mastering the Union of
Blissful Openness

Day-long retreat with Dr. Pilar Jennings and Desiree Caban

The class retreat, taught by Pilar Jenings and Desiree Caban, explores the transformational practice of role-modeling heroic altruism in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Known for its arts of imagery and recitation, this potent method relies on an intimate mentoring bond, the living crucible it shares with psychotherapy and childrearing. Unpacking the neurolinguistics of self-creation this tradition assumes, the instructors explore the transformational practice of imagery and affirmation based on the Healing Mother (Arya-Tara).

This retreat is open to all whether or not you've taken prior Four-Year Program classes.

Please wear comfortable clothing for ease of movement and bring a yoga mat if you own one.
