The Bay Area Weekend Retreat with Pema Chödrön, one of the most distinguished Tibetan Buddhist teachers of our time. This event hosted 3,200 guests and took place Oct 15-17, 2010. It sold out months in advance.
In one of her final teaching appearances in the San Francisco Bay Area, beloved teacher Ani Pema Chödrön taught us how to work with our fear and anxiety using gentleness and inquisitiveness. We do this through the practice of meditation which leads us to befriend our fear and helps us find peace in our lives.
Ani Pema plans to spend more time in retreat in the coming years. This was a rare opportunity to spend a full weekend with her in person. This retreat includes additional meditation sessions led by Carolyn Rose Gimian, the editor of Smile at Fear, a book of teachings by the great Tibetan master Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche.
Pema Chödrön’s accessible style and deep understanding of meditation practice and her insight into how to apply the teachings to every day life makes this program suitable for those new to meditation as well as longtime practitioners.
